It's very hard to find MSG free broths and canned soups where I live. It's best to make ones own broth but I understand that it's not readily available.
I love turmeric in soups, it's got great anti cancer proprieties.
If you need a bit more protein, I suggest to break open an egg in soup.

I take it you didn't want any chicken soup recipes so I am linking you one of my favorite clam chowder recipes. You can leave out what your friend might not be able to get down and also as for the potato's you can blend them up if need be with any of the other veggies. As for the clams, you can just use clam juice and leave out the clams themselves. All in all, I have never had a clam chowder as good as this!

Roast some cauliflower in oven till soft and good and brown on top. Brown some onions and a bit of bacon slowly in a sauce pan.Pour off most all of grease leaving about a tablespoon in pan.Using swanson chicken stock/broth, cream or whole milk,(about 1/2 and 1/2 with chix stock and cream) salt and pepper. Heat all together. Put roasted cauliflower in blender add wet mixture (a little at a time to desired consistency) and spin away. Add more wet ingredients till it is a good soup consistency.
Enjoy Can do it with a mix of veggies or just different vegetables alone. Carrot and apple is good,broccolli, winter squashes work well also.
I love the cauliflower recipies.
Take the above recipie and to add a great twist, add a bit of crumbed gorgonzola cheese in the blender and whip until smoth, it'll make your mouth water.
Another comfort food I like is ground hamburger, add cream of mushroom soup with 1 cup of milk, served over whipped mashed potatoes. You can ground up the hamburger in a food processor so it's not too chunky.
