This isn’t always a fill-you-up sort of meal, and occasionally I will serve it as a first direction to a Japanese menu. Or if the soup is the handiest element on for dinner, we can upload some noodles as nicely. This is just one in all many delicious Asian soups to strive!Ingredients

Thanks so much for preventing through, Kim and thank you for the superb pointers!!My favorite add-in to this soup is shrimp or prawns.Love it.It still makes for a light soup and is so exact!
i just made this soup and it is superb. very near what i’ve had at special eastern restaurants. wishes a chunk extra soy sauce then the quantity you have got here, but no longer a lot. and a dash of salt and a touch pepper. additionally, it’s desirable in case you after it boils to permit it simmer with the green onions and whatever else you’re going to use in it. it clearly lets their taste get inside the soup.
splendid process! thanks a lot 😀

Hi Audrey – The words from a Japanese mother that I study one time were sort of like these, “We consume clear soups because if they have been thick soups enough could be wasted from what sticks to the bowls that might feed a toddler for a 12 months.” Gus
