My Chinese soup recipes index. A master list of free soup recipes. Use them as guides to make your very own special homemade soup.

I hope you won’t treat the recipes listed here as carved in stone. We Chinese do not like to follow recipes strictly. They usually serve as guides. I will change the ingredients, quantity and cooking tools according to seasons, preferences, environment and availability. Do adjust them to suit your own needs.
