I used dried shiitake mushrooms that I soaked in hot water for 20 minutes, Sliced and strained the liquid into the soup. Used fresh ground pepper flakes a nice kick! And fresh sliced cabbage added a carrot which did need more then 5 minutes of cooking more like 20 minutes. ;) Was just so good and comforting! Thanks, L,L,& L, Rita
