The broth base for this soup is out of this world! I was amazed out how quickly this was to make. I stuck to the recipe, except I had no bean sprouts, so I just threw in a little extra snap peas and shiitake mushrooms. The soup is very satisfying, yet very light. Thanx for posting this!

watching her make this recipe has inspired a lot of variations on a theme for me. i make similar versions of this same recipe a couple times a month- low calorie, high flavor, food that just makes you feel good.

Hello, my "adopted joey" for Recipe Swap #19! This soup smelled great while cooking and was equally delicious. I think I will use the base broth for this recipe for other soups. Thank you for posting this recipe! Best wishes on posting many more!
