Use whatever vegetables you have on hand for this simple, clear broth soup that will make you feel warm and cozy.


  • 1/2 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1/4 white onion, sliced
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1" ginger, sliced
  • hardy greens, sliced celery, or sliced daikon
  • 4 oz shrimp or white fish, chopped
  • sliced jalapeno (optional)
2 servings


Heat the oil is a pot over medium heat. Cook the onions until they soften, about 3 minutes. Add the water, fish sauce, and ginger. Bring to a boil, and keep boiling for 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium and add the vegetables. Cook for 5 more minutes. Add the seafood. Once the seafood loses its pink, remove from heat and let sit for 10 minutes. Serve warm with sliced jalapenos.
