“This is a really nice basic soup with good flavor. An excellent accompaniment to your Chinese dinner when you don’t have time to make Won Ton Soup. It is also a nice substitute for Chicken Noodle Soup when you are sick. The original recipe called for a parsley and ham garnish, and while it makes for a pretty presentation, flavor-wise I prefer a bit of green onion sprinkled on top.” – April Ferre
