    Chef Kate's Note:

    A classic from Northern China, this is a very mild soup. Very good served with spicy condiments/sauces on the side. The original recipe called for 1/4 teaspoon of MSG. I leave it out.

      Excellent! I made this for my aging parents and they thought it was delicious and asked for seconds (my father especially is very picky). I substituted portabello mushrooms for the wood ear since we can't get wood ear mushrooms here, and used Campbell's low salt healthy request soup in a carton (no MSG) for the soup. When I make it for myself I add thinly sliced hot peppers...

      I really liked this soup. It had a fresh, 'clean' taste and was very pretty with the spinach served on top. This recipe gets its 5 justly-deserved stars because of great flavour matched by incredible ease of preparation and low calorie count. Thanks for a great lunch, Kate.
