Chicken and Ginger Soup with Courgettes

It’s a healthy soup made of chicken,  ginger and green vegetables…..If you have a hang-over due to excessive drinking-try this? If you are not feeling well due to some fever, cough, colds and etc – try this. Whenever me and my family feel unwell, I always cook a soup made with ginger and lots of green vegetables. It is very similar to Pinoy’s tinola as it has almost the same ingredients except the veggies. Actually you can use any vegetable you want as long as you like it…………….Did you know that ginger has long been used as traditional medicine for the treatment of cough and cold. Many people also find ginger to be helpful in the case of stomach flus or food poisoning, which is not surprising given the positive effects ginger has upon the digestive tract. ….
