Often I made chinese food that doesn't have a ton of veggies, like a noodle dish or sesame chicken. I use this soup to add some much needed veg to the meal. Its a great way to start any Asian themed meal and get some extra nutrition in your diet! This soup is quite low calorie so it's great to snack on as well!
