What a fabulous recipe and thanks for the nutritional values too. I will be trying this recipe really soon:)
I think I might make it a thicker consistency. Then I would put lettuce on top or those white crunchy noodles. Oh, I know water chestnuts maybe. I would like something with it that has a little crunch. What could I add to it for the crunch texture?
I will try this one, everything in it is absolutely according to my taste. I would add a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg to balance all the flavors.
This recipe sounds yummy. I like the Asian twist (soy sauce and pineapple juice). I bet the parsnips and beans absorb the flavors from the liquids really well. I had never considered using vegetable juice in soup before. It seems like an obvious choice, now that I think about it. Thanks so much for sharing. I'll give this one a try soon.
