Soups, Stews & Chili | 30 Minutes or Less, Budget-minded | Beans, Vegetables
SERVES 4 - START TO FINISH: 25 minutes
Chopped ginger in a jar is usually found in the produce section of the supermarket near the bottled garlic. An equal amount of peeled, finely minced fresh ginger can be used instead.
6 cups reduced-sodium, fat-free chicken or vegetable broth
2 cups (about 10 ounces) frozen shelled edamame
1 cup already sliced white mushrooms, coarsely chopped
1 teaspoon bottled fresh ginger*
1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
Dash of Asian (toasted) sesame oil
2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
Salt and black pepper, to taste
Heat broth over medium-high heat in a 3-quart or larger soup pot or saucepan. Add edamame, mushrooms, ginger, soy sauce, sesame oil and cilantro and bring to a full boil (uncovered).
Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 15 minutes to blend flavors. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately in shallow bowls.

Thank you, honestly, sincerely, from the bottom of my heart for giving this gift to the "frantic families" in the world. God Bless you! Now, if you'll excuse me I need to go dig in to my "Oh-so-easy Turkey Tetrazzini" (it was a YUM!)
