    Sue Lau's Note:

    A nice vegetarian version of the classic soup. But you could add some shrimp if you like.

      Not too crazy for this recipe but it was easy and it served in a pinch. I couldn't get it HOT enough. It lacked that wow.

      This was suprisingly very good! I say that because I hate tofu, but the tofu soaked up the flavors of the soup and it was delicious. Has a tangy/sweet taste. Thank you so much for the recipe!
