Customize this soup with your choice of veggies

The beauty of Vegetarian Manchow Soup lies in its versatility, allowing you to use a variety of veggies based on your preferences and what you have on hand. Here are some veggies that work wonderfully in this soup:

  1. Carrots: Add a pop of color and natural sweetness. Slice them thinly or julienne for a delicate texture.
  2. Green Beans: Provide a crisp texture and vibrant green color. Cut them into bite-sized pieces.
  3. Broccoli: Offer a hearty and nutritious addition. Break the broccoli into small florets.
  4. Bell Peppers: Add a sweet and slightly tangy flavor. Choose different colors for visual appeal and varied taste.
  5. Cabbage: Shred or thinly slice cabbage for a lovely texture and a hint of sweetness.
  6. Bok Choy: Contribute a mild, fresh flavor. Separate the leaves and stems for a dynamic mix.
  7. Spinach or Kale: Toss in some leafy greens for added nutrition. They wilt quickly, so add them towards the end.
  8. Mushrooms: Shiitake mushrooms are a classic choice, but you can experiment with others like button or oyster mushrooms. Slice or chop them finely.
  9. Snow Peas: Offer a crunchy texture and a slightly sweet flavor. Trim the ends and add them whole or sliced.
  10. Corn: Sweet corn kernels add a burst of sweetness and color. You can use fresh, frozen, or canned corn.
  11. Cauliflower: Similar to broccoli, cauliflower florets bring a hearty and substantial feel to the soup.
  12. Bean Sprouts: Provide a refreshing and crunchy element. Add them just before serving to maintain their texture.

Feel free to mix and match these veggies or add others that you enjoy. The key is to keep the vegetables in bite-sized pieces for a balanced and enjoyable soup experience. Experimenting with different combinations will allow you to tailor the soup to your liking.
