Tired of the same old soup out of a can every day for lunch? Jazz it up with some ethnic condiments for a fun flavor variation.
This is a favorite of mine: Chinese chicken noodle soup.
1 can chicken noodle soup (I like Campbell's) diluted according to directions.
Add while heating to a gentle boil:
1-2 tbsp soy sauce
1-2 tbsp rice vinegar
Ground pepper to taste
Beat and add slowly to gently boiling soup:
1 or 2 eggs
Chinese hot oil
Make a special soup that is a unique expression of YOU by experimenting. Start with a can of a soup with relatively few flavors. Chicken broth based soups are good; minestrone is already very complex and ethnic to boot. Add, to taste, condiments and extras such as:
Vietnamese fish sauce
apple cider vinegar
hot pepper oil
Use your imagination! Explore! Discover new combinations! It's fun!
