I make this soup when I make a meal of egg foo young, lup chong(chinese sausage and rice.
I make it with watercress as that is my husbands favorite but if not in the store then I use bok choy which is MY favorite veggie for the soup. You can make a big pot of this soup or small.. I make a smaller pot since its just the two of us now.
