Japanese Mushroom Soup with Green Onions

Updated: Jan 2, 2020

Soup warms the soul! In my opinion, the key to a quality soup is the stock or broth. I like to make my own stock which allows me to control the type of chicken I’m using (almost always free range and antibiotic free) and the salt content.

This soup is great tasting and simple. It is also good for you! I tend to use chili sauce or chili pepper flakes in most of my recipes. I like the extra heat and flavour.

Adjust always to your liking and don’t start with too much heat, especially if you are cooking for others. Start light and adjust as you go.
