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

Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag game and this was a great hit! I did use a variety of mushrooms (shiitake, oysters and a couple of crimini) and I used napa cabbage so I also grated some carrots to add to the mix. I also add a few red pepper flakes for a kick. Definately a keeper and going into my Favorites of 2013.

Yee-Umm. My kids looove this soup, as do I. Great base recipe. Added rehydrated wood ear mushrooms and bean sprouts to the recipe with amazing results. We'll be making this a lot!!!
