This was absolutely yummy and so quick I didn't have any peppers or fresh mushrooms just lots of beansprouts and gr. onion talk about a tasty meal (the sesame seeds made it). Also I am on a low carb diet and this fit right in I suppose it is good for calorie counters too. Thanks Patricia Read More

After all the great reviews I had high hopes. I decided to follow the recipe exactly and make no substitutions. The consomme was overpowering and bland. We could not taste any of the individual ingredients. It definitely did not taste Asian. No one could even tell there were sesame seeds in it. Are you sure you meant consomme? Read More

I really enjoyed this soup. The only thing I changed was I added some fresh garlic (through a garlic press) and omitted the green pepper. Make sure not to over cook the bean sprouts and green onion. The texture of the veggies really makes the meal. Good cold too. Read More

Wonderful. I love a soup loaded with fresh veggies. I used chicken broth instead of consomme. I thought the soup might need some added salt or spice but it didn't. It was perfectly seasoned. Read More

This is a really good soup! It reminds so much of a meal my mom used to make. It was basically the same ingredients except she'd thicken the sauce and serve it over rice. I made this recipe exactly as written. I think it's important to use beef consommé and not beef broth. They have completely different flavors. I couldn't taste the sesame seeds. Next time I will either double the amount or leave them out altogether. It doesn't really scream "Asian" to me but it's good nonetheless. I thought it needed a bit of salt so I added some soy sauce and it was perfect. This would be really good with ground pork or chicken. Read More
