Marmie's Delicious Asain Flavor, Low Cal, Low Fat Vegetable Soup

“Amazingly delicious, low calorie, low fat, somewhat spicy, oriental flavor diet soup! A really nice change from the tomatoe based diet soups. This makes a huge dutch oven full. I like to eat it all week when ever I am hungry as a snack, for lunch or before dinner as a low calorie nutrishious fil-me- upper. (To further reduce sodium I would suggest home made chicken or vegetable stock and reduce the soya a bit. It does change the flavor some but would reduce sodium if that were a concern.) A person could also add a few rice noodles and shrimp or fish or chicken for a balanced meal. What would be easier than that?!”
