This is a homey clear soup with meat, seafood and vegetables all in one pot. Great to serve with rice or as noodle soup by adding a bunch of glass noodles or any other noodles you like.
The meatballs are chewy and tasty with crunchy Chinese leafy cabbage and sweet carrots. Delicious.
This is the type of soup that I will prepare whenever there are little bits of this and that ingredients leftover in my fridge.Ingredients
