  1. We really liked this at our house. It was easy to make. I didn't use celery becasue I don't like the taste but I think water chestnuts would be good for some crunch. I also would use different noodles next time. The rice ones I got at my store were about 3 feet long in - Read more ...
  2. Sorry but as written this was very bland and did not even taste Asian at all.
  3. Ok, after reading other reviews and analyzing the recipe, I made a few small changes, but the recipe would still be great without them (hence, the 5 stars!). The changes that I made were to use ground ginger instead of minced (what I had on hand), 2 cans of cut baby corn instead of carrots, - Read more ...
  4. Also added spinach napa cabbage. Used a full pound of shrimp. Added a dash of sesame oil. Used soaked rice noodles. Soak in hot water 10 min then cook with the soup. Would make again.
  5. I cut the ingredients in half but otherwise followed the recipe to a T. It came out great. I think the trick is not using low-sodium chicken broth.
  6. This is a great soup fantastic on cold nights. Since there are only two of us I place our servings in a smaller pot and cook the noodles only for those portions... keeps the noodles from turning mushy in the leftovers.
  7. We love this soup! Even my young daughter eats this. I use pre-cooked frozen shrimp because I always have it on hand.
  8. Easy to throw together and doesn't need too many exotic ingredients. I'm a grad student and this was great to serve to a bunch of friends for not much money;) Great light soup.
  9. This soup was delightful with delicate flavors. It was easy and fairly quick to make (I cut up all the veggies ahead of time). I added some wine (about 1/2 cup) 2 tbs of rice vinegar for a slight sour kick and some chopped cilantro for added flavor.
  10. I have four children and they like different foods.One likes everything another likes almost nothing the last two only likes pizza & hamburgers. At last they all agree on this recipe.It is incredible the ease of making it.And the flavor is delicious.I would reccomend this recipe to anyone who wants a change of traditional soups.
