This soup was very easily made and had a sprightly flavor that I very much enjoyed. The parmesan garnish added a nice salty contrast to the lemon. It was delicate, light and just perfect as a starter to our meal.

I personally did not care for the taste of this soup. The cornstarch gave it a cloudy color and the lemon flavor seemed out of place to me. It was just a personal preference thing.
