Sick and starving?

You’re sick. You don’t feel well enough to make the trek to Safeway to buy your favorite tomato soup, your mother is 400 miles away and can’t make you some of her special chicken soup, nothing on Postmates sounds appetizing and your roommate has little to no cooking ability. Don’t worry — we won’t let you starve. Today, we’re bringing to you a simple recipe that anyone can make (even your roommate who may or may not be able to utilize a kitchen).
