Indian inspired Corn Soup with Greek Yogurt 

Okay, the crazy weather in Georgia has tons of people sick.  One day it’s summer, the next day it’s winter with a touch of fall by 2:00 pm. Lol. Hey, I  love my state, but she can be a little unpredictable.  Well, if you are needing some natural remedies, get some rest, plenty of fluids and enjoy a couple bowls of this soup. Its loaded with turmeric, garlic and onions, all known to help boost your immune system.  I added a few fancy garnishes, like edible flowers and red bell peppers, but you can just enjoy it all by itself, no accessories required. Enjoy and remember to Set the Table with Love.
