Loving shrimp, water chestnuts and mushrooms along with the green onions made this a recipe I just had to try! Happy I did - it's a wonderfully different soup that will see to repeats. Made this with me in mind and just made half the recipe - there will be no more halving this one! Served with freshly baked bread made for a perfect lunch. Thank you Pixi for another of your great tasting recipes. Made for My-3-Chefs.
