Top Review by Deantini

I really liked this soup! It is authentic in it's flavour and consistency. I omitted the spinach and added green onions just before serving so they still had a bit of crunch. The serving size is quite small if it should stretch to 8 servings.I would say 4 servings at the most, unless you just want to use it as a small starter.
