“This is a wonderful soup. I came up with it because I liked the instant packets but with a large family needed a larger inexpensive version. My children ages 4 and up enjoy this one too. It is a light flavorful soup that is also quick and easy to make. I prepare this with preminced garlic and jarred shredded ginger for ease and speed, staples in my kitchen.”
