Used different ingredients. This soup was superb! I only used 1 tablespoon of soy sauce and two of vinegar, added tofu, and it was GREAT! Definetely better than restaraunt style. I loved how easy it was, too. I will make this all the time! - 21 Jul 2008

Altered ingredient amounts. I think this is a very good recipe considering I am pretty picky! I am not much of a soy sauce fan....but I think this is pretty good. I did cut back on the full amount of soy sauce though. YUM! - 21 Jul 2008


Excellent. Quick and easy to make and delicious. I'm a Chinese food nut, having eaten at hundreds of Chinese restaurants through the years. This recipe ranks with the best of restaurants. I may decrease the vinegar slightly next time, but other than that - I wouldn't change a thing. - 21 Jul 2008
