    nutdoc's Note:

    This is my family's very favorite soup! It taste just like take-out! It's quick and easy. I have been making it for years. Have a cold? Forget that plain old chicken soup! ***IMPORTANT TIP*** I suggest making this soup a day or two ahead to let the vegetables and tofu marinate! Then just heat and serve. Enjoy!

      WONDERFUL SOUP! This recipe is the best I've had. Marinating it over night really adds to the depth of flavor, great tip! The 2nd time I made this I doubled the amount of liquid and spice and left the veggie amounts the same. I like extra broth. It's also worth mentioning that I thought I wouldn't like the Tofu- but when it's left to marinate it completely takes on the flavor of the soup! This recipe is a keeper!

      I am in love with this soup. I made this last night and eating the leftovers now. I made my own broth from a whole chicken since I needed the meat for chicken salad for another meal anyway...I kept the meat from the legs and wings for this soup...I have no idea if I used only 6 cups of stock...I think it was probably more as I just filled my stock pot...I ended up adding 1 tablespoon more of soy sauce, chili sauce (I used Japanese style since I love the flavor) and vinegar (I used rice vin 'cause its what I had). I also added a tbsp of duck sauce which is something I usually add at the table when going out for chinese. This simmerd for much longer at the end after everything was added but I think it was all the better for it...I just served with some chow mein noodles and everyone enjoyed yummy...I'll be making this again for sure...I may try adding slivers of beef next time...this is also easy enough to make as part of a large chinese meal. Just put the pot on the back burner to simmer while you do everything else...I normally find Chinese food to be overwhelming but this is easy and better than the restaurants and with my efforts to keep kosher in a place where there are no kosher restaurants this is a great find...thanks for posting!
