Great basic recipe and very easy.. I needed to change it a bit to make it work for my diet.. used vegtable stock instead of chicken stock.. used halved large prawns instead of cooked chicken....

I've been trying to duplicate an Asian soup recipe they serve in the Employee Dining Room at work, and this did the trick. I added celery and carrots to the soup, floated a star anise in it bri...
