Chinese Clear Soups


In Chinese Soups a light soup's ingredients are used as flavorings rather than for a main ingredient. The excellence of Chinese light soups is due to the clear stock and the fresh flavor of the added ingredients which is achieved by the speed at which they are cooked. Soups in Chinese cooking are used very differently. At ordinary Chinese home meals, there is a community soup bowl on the table. Traditionally soup in China acts as a drink as water or tea are not served with meals.
