Seven soups every Saturday: Chinese soup recipes
In the house where I grew up, a Jewish-American middle-class close-to-New-York house, my parents believed that the soup that cured everything was chicken soup, but that chicken soup didn't have to be Jewish. More often than not, the chicken soup that made me feel better came from our local Chinese restaurant. Egg drop soup topped the list, but as I got older, I graduated to wonton soup and then, finally, to hot and sour soup. It wasn't until recently that I figured out why Chinese soups really do make me feel better; the broth is simmered with fresh ginger root, which is famous for its healing properties. And all these years, I thought it was simply because Chinese soups taste so good.
