Oriental Meatball Soup

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by MA HIKER

I used to get my hair done at my hairdresser's house. One day she was cooking this soup and it gave the air a delicious aroma. She has since moved away but I still make this soup and it always gets raves!

This oriental soup is tasty & so easy to make. I used grd pork for the meatballs & a collection of veggies indluding mixed leftovers, canned mushrooms & baby corn + snow peas from my freezer. It was a good cleanup effort that will include adding the last bit of some fried rice tomorrow. This soup makes an excellent 1-dish meal & would satisfy even the most dedicated meat & potatoes man. This will be repeated w/just the addition of some garlic. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. Edited to Add: Since making this recipe w/meatballs as written, I have also tried it w/baby shrimp & it is equally good. :-)
