So that's part of what inspired this recipe I guess, which was really easy. And when I say easy....All you had to do was throw everything in a pot and simmer. You cant get any easier than that. What I realized after making this soup; I'm not a fan of shiitake mushrooms. I will probably NEVER use them again and if a recipe calls for them...I'm making substitutions. I'll stick with my portabella mushrooms thank you very much.
So I rate this recipe about a 7 out of a ten. It was a little more than average. Hubby and Daughter thought it was great, while I thought it was just ok. It's not one that I'd be in a rush to make again. I did a spicy slaw salad which I though was a pretty good combination. Me and the Daughter liked it, although the recipe called for just a little too much mayonaise..I used this:
|Finished meal...had to throw in vegi potstickers (store bought)|
|Finished soup....looks good right?|
So there you have it. The recipe that I was SOOO looking forward to that I was a little disappointed in. I haven't had Chinese food from a restaurant in several years. I'm thinking I need to go sample this recipe from an authentic restaurant and then do a comparison. Not sure if my taste buds are a little off or not. lol So that's it. Come back tomorrow to see what I'll be serving.
Peace and Blessings all!!!!
