    MajKaj's Note:

    I am not sure where we found the original recipe but we have adapted it to be a household favorite! This is a mild but flavorful soup that goes well with spring rolls for a lighter meal.

      Mmmmmmm, yummy! I've made this as written, and also with substitutions. Tonight I didn't have chinese cabbage or snow peas. So, I threw in regular green cabbage, spinach, and extra onions! Delish! Thanks so much for sharing!! UPDATE: Forgot to say I added a veggie chicken broth powder (McKay's) to up the flavor. Have also used kale. Also add lots extra instead of sticking to the measurement of veggies~~I like it loaded with them!

      I added cooked rice noodles and mushrooms and served it with sambal oelek for some heat. This recipe will be used again and again. I love the flavour of the sesame oil.

      I added rice noodles and pimentos (for color) and this was wonderful.
