This is a broth that I made with a few ingredients, and the end result is delicious. Add almost anything to it. I added vegetables, and boneless chicken breast. This is an easy, flexible recipe.

This soup is awesome. My kids asked me to make it the very next day....So we ended up having it two days in a row. The second day we added water chestnuts and bamboo shoots. I added more garlic scallions & mushrooms than the original recipe called for because we like a chunky soup. I omitted the carrots. This tastes just like the soup at our favorite (upscale) restaurant. Thanks for sharing!! Read More

First I doubled the recipe as I had to feed four and my DH loves his Asian food so I figured he'd eat more than 1 bowl. I served it as an appetizer before a ginger-garlic stir-fry. I did add extra ginger and garlic (as we like it) and only 1 cubed chicken breast which was quite enough chicken. I also added diced potato to chunk it up since I didn't have the mushrooms or snow peas. I wish I did it would have really added to the soup! Will try some kale in it next time too. DH said it was fantastic better than what our 3 local Japanese steakhouse and our sushi bars serve. He said I have to make it again - often. He also said it was his new favorite soup! Read More

This was pretty good. It seemed a little bland but I'm not sure what else you could add maybe more garlic? Next time I will cook the vegetables longer we don't like crunchy vegetables in our soup. Read More

A very quick and easy dish. My GF and I were surprised at how good it tasted and the calorie count allowed us to go back for seconds without feeling guilty. Read More

This recipe was really good! I doubled the ingredients for the broth and added some whole wheat noodles to it before adding in the veggies. I didn't add the snow peas since I didn't have them. I will definitely make this again! Read More

Super easy and tasty and a great cure for a sore throat. I skipped the scallions and peas because I didn't have any and doubled the mushrooms to add a little more bulk. I also doubled the garlic as others said it was a bit bland without. All in all really tasty! Read More
