"Hot in temperature and flavor, this vegetarian version of the classic Chinese soup is fragrant and delicious. I like to add some cooked rice at serving time for a substantial one-dish meal." Recipe by Robin Robertson, found on VegCooking.com

OMG this was awful. Flavorless, and the vegetables were pretty limp. We ended up adding extra soy sauce and some teriyaki to make it edible. I've had soups like this in restaurants and they are yummy. Not this one. Stay away.
