This soup turned out well, though I added a bit of soy sauce, crushed red pepper and scallions for a little extra flavor.

One of the best soups i've ever had, I added a little garlic to substatute for the sesame oil I didn't have. It tasted great, I would recommend for a dinner party, or just for dinner. Plus it's really healthy and good for you. :)

Thanks for this. It's simple and makes a quick lunch meal for us. I could see that it might become a "get well" soup like Nikoma said. We've found tha it's important to make sure you have a vegie stock you really like, however, because with such simple ingredients, the stock flavor will be pronounced.
