If you are on a bland diet, you may want to use only 1/2 the amount of ginger root, and leave out the garlic and scallions.
If you’d like to add some calories and bulk the soup up, soak and soften some rice noodles in hot water, 1oz per person. Drain, and add to the bowls before the vegetables, chicken and broth.
If you like a little spice, mix together 1 teaspoon of toasted sesame oil, 2 teaspoons Thai chili sauce, and 1 teaspoon of soy sauce. Serve family style in a small dipping bowl. Individuals can add the sauce to the broth to suit their taste.
All our recipes are created by chefs and reviewed by our oncology-trained staff Registered Dietitian, Kate Ueland, MS, RD, to ensure that each is backed with scientific evidence and meets the standards set by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
