An Japanese-inspired soup. Chicken, carrot, mushrooms, mange-tout and spring onions are simmered in a subtly flavoured chicken stock. It's fantastic served as a starter.
This soup is awesome. My kids asked me to make it the very next day....So we ended up having it two days in a row. The second day we added water chestnuts and bamboo shoots. I added more garlic, scallions, & mushrooms than the original recipe called for because we like a chunky soup. I omitted the carrots. This tastes just like the soup at our favorite (upscale) restaurant. Thanks for sharing!! - 13 Jan 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
First, I doubled the recipe as I had to feed four, and my DH loves his Asian food, so I figured he'd eat more than 1 bowl. I served it as an appetizer before a ginger-garlic stir-fry. I did add extra ginger and garlic (as we like it) and only 1 cubed chicken breast, which was quite enough chicken. I also added diced potato to chunk it up since I didn't have the mushrooms or snow peas. I wish I did, it would have really added to the soup! Will try some kale in it next time, too. DH said it was fantastic, better than what our 3 local Japanese steakhouse and our sushi bars serve. He said I have to make it again - often. He also said it was his new favorite soup! - 05 Jul 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is a nice and light soup I did add some bean sprouts and shredded carrots. - 25 Sep 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
