As we do not care for the oriental foods that much...I decided to make this soup and gave it an Italian flare! It really is a quick and delicious soup that I make for dinner or lunch and serve with a few crackers or toasted cheese. And believe it or not it really does keep you satisfied for a long time, which is a real diet plus. Truly a family fav! Enjoy :-)
