    A foodlover's Note:

    I found this in my Shape magazine. It is a great lowfat soup that helps on a cold day or as a flu zapper. It looks like a long list but it is quick to make.

      Loved this soup! I used the 1/4 teaspoon Asian chili sauce and may increase it next time to 1/2 as a personal preference. Loved the combination of veggies and chicken. I added some matchstick carrot slices to add even more color and it looked very appealing in the soup bowls. I am so glad I picked to make this from the Newbie Nursery for the Fall 2007 PAC.

      Delicious and beautiful looking soup! I halved the soy sauce and used low sodium, and it was just right for us. Also omitted the sugar, doubled the ginger, and used a little extra lime. Topped with basil and cilantro. Wonderful flavors! Served 3 with 4 ounces of noodles added to it.

      I loved the wonderful combination of colors and flavors in the soup! The chicken was also cooked to the perfect degree of tenderness...not overcooked at all! But I found this to be too salty for my palate. I used regular soy sauce, so I would advise using low sodium soy or using less in the recipe. I used home-made chicken stock, with no salt added, so that didn't add to the salt content. I've added some potatoes to try and soak up some of the extra salt....with that, I hope the leftovers will be absolutely wonderful! Thanks for sharing a very unique soup recipe! Made for Best of 2009 tag game.
