Are you trying to cure a cold? Or are you in for something affordable but delicious? In any case, chicken noodle soup is always the answer. Chicken soups are known all over the world, in Mexico there is Caldo do pollo, in Korea it is called Baeksuk, and the Danes have come up with hønsekødsuppe. This particular soup has an Italian feel to it – it is the presence of the chickpeas and the spinach that make you think of the beautiful Tuscan landscape.
