    Hadice's Note:

    Vegetarian version of the Chinese favorite. Many thin tofu is bland, but it actually takes on the flavor of whatever it is cooked in. In this case it happens to be soy, vinegar and pepper flakes.

      I thought this was alright, perfectly fine for a healthy lunch maybe with some toast. I imagine the flavors will be fuller once frozen and reheated which I look forward to.

      This was just what I needed. I omitted the red bell pepper and added a couple kinds of dried mushrooms. After reading some of the other reviews I also added less tofu. Very nice comforting soup.
