Health News Digest recently ran a great article where they write, Along with winter comes the ominous cold and flu season. For those who aren?t fortunate enough to make it through the season without catching a bug, many will turn to home remedies to help alleviate their symptoms. Home remedies can sometimes make all the difference in the world when nursing oneself back to good health.
Below is a delicious recipe from the Salada Tea Company that combines two common home remedies – – green tea and vegetable soup – – for a much tastier option to that lingering cold or flu than cough syrup. Recent studies have shown that the health benefits of green tea are numerous and that the antioxidants found in green tea help boost the immune system.
Green Tea Vegetable Soup
1 (14 ounce) can chicken broth or vegetable broth
1 (11.5 ounce) can tomato-vegetable juice cocktail
1 cup brewed Salada 100% Green Tea
1 large potato, diced
2 carrots, sliced

1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes
1 cup chopped fresh green beans
1 cup fresh corn kernels
Salt and pepper to taste Creole Seasoning to taste (optional)
In a large stock pot, combine broth, tomato juice, brewed green tea, potatoes, carrots, celery, undrained chopped tomatoes, green beans, and corn. Season with salt, pepper and optional Creole seasoning.
Bring to a boil and simmer for 30 minutes or until all vegetables are tender.
