Spring Soup

This is a simple, yet elegant, attractive soup which can be served with a variety of main courses. This is also an economical soup. The only requisite is that you use fresh ingredients.
  • 1 can chicken broth
  • 3 asparagus spears, sliced diagonally 1/8" thick
  • 20 Chinese peas, sliced diagonally 1/8" thick
  • 1 yellow squash, sliced diagonally 1/8" thick
  • 1 green onion, sliced diagonally 1/8" thick
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Heat the chicken broth in a pot. If you are using canned chicken broth, add an equal portion of water. One can of broth plus one can of water will make enough soup to feed 4 people. Bring the broth and water to a boil. Add the sliced asparagus, peas, squash, green onion and seasonings to the broth. Serve immediately.

Variations: Try adding a few sprigs of fresh chopped coriander (cilantro), or some fresh chopped parsley as a garnish. Some fresh sliced mushrooms are also a good addition. This basic soup allows for innovation. Use your imagination with this soup, and use what happens to be fresh.
