This healthy, light soup is quick to make and has authentic flavor from ginger, sesame, soy sauce and green onions. Cantonese bean thread noodles, also called cellophane noodles, are typically soaked in hot water for 10-15 minutes then rinsed and used in soups and stir-fries. —Jean Hines, Goodyear, Arizona

"I made this soup for family night and it was yumm.

I wanna get classy soup bowls so I can serve soup on a regular basis. I love that the kids are starting to like it to. I need soup bowls that can also be used for kids serving. Any suggestions?"

"We really enjoyed this soup. We had leftover pork tenderloin to use up and on a cold, wet, wintery night this recipe sounded great. I didn't add the extra cup of water. I think it would be rather tasteless adding it. The only other changes I made were rice noodles, I added garlic, a bit more carrot, bok choy and pork to make it more substantial, about 2 tsp ginger instead of 1 Tbsp. and I forgot to add the sesame oil."
