Shazam! Chinese Soup

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Pot Scrubber

I was cleaning out the fridge today and had a few vegetables I didn't just want to toss so I made this soup. I really surprised myself with this one and I am posting it while it is fresh in my mind. Really good and simple.

This is a quick, easy and tasty soup. VERY low-cal, too! I added some sliced mushrooms that I had to use up and a bit of 5-spice powder. The broth was so flavorful. Thanx for this one PotScrubber! I'll make this again.
