Elegant Japanese Soup

READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by Bergy

Be sure to use clear full flavored broth. Personally I like to add the carrots & mushrooms into the bowl of steaming broth without simmering them first , personal preference. This is such an attractive, easy to make, light soup that is just perfect for the start of an Oriental meal or with any meal. Substitute strands of cooked Chicken instead of the seafood. See footnore at bottom of recipe for clarifying broth

What an excellent recipe! I followed the directions except for cutting it in half...should have made the whole recipe for leftovers. Served with sushi rolls and DH just yummmmmed the whole way. Made for TOTM-Soup Fest tag game 2011.
