Delightful soup! I did not use the fish sauce as I can't get it here right now, and used soba noodles. I made the chicken into quenelles which made for a lovely presentation. And to stretch the leftover soup, I added chopped bok choy. We thoroughly enjoyed both meals! Thank you for sharing Bea! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.

Curling fan that I am come bonspiel time I plan for special meals, this year for our Canadian Brier games it was an Asian theme. So easy with the choices over at our Billboard. This soup so easy to make and enjoy while watching. As with you I used Chicken instead of the pork using 1 large clove of garlic. Great soup and into my 'Favourite Soups' cookbook.
