Asian-style soups are ideal to make when you want a good soup quickly,
with little forethought. With a burst of inspiration and a few choice
ingredients, a tasty soup is a few minutes away. While most soups
benefit from being made ahead of time to develop flavor, these are
best eaten as soon as they are made.
- 8 to 10 ounces white or cremini mushrooms, cleaned and sliced (use presliced if desired)
- 2 vegetable bouillon cubes
- 2 cups cooked rice
- 2 cups finely shredded dark
- green lettuce
- 2 scallions, thinly sliced
- Salt and freshly ground pepper to tast
If you find yourself with too much lettuce and some leftover rice,
here's a great way to use both.
1 Combine the mushrooms, bouillon cubes, and 4 cups water in a large saucepan and bring to a simmer. Cover and simmer gently until the mushrooms are tender, about 10 minutes.
2 Add the remaining ingredients and cook until everything is heated through, about 5 minutes, and serve.
