"This was good but not great. I added at least double the spinach and green onions for more flavor and used soy sauce at the table."

"This soup was terrible! It had absolutely no flavor at all. I had to salvage it by dumping a bunch of salt and instant bouillon into it! It tasted pretty good after that but I definitely will not use this recipe again!"
