What are any and all of the unique flavor bringing herbs and veges used in oriental soups? Answered
I want to include into my garden any and every vegetable/herb i can find that goes well in one soup or another, for adding into (real) ramens and packet ramens to make them better, or better yet, to make my own soup from scratch.
Im into asian inspired soups and go nanners for packet ramen simply because they are so much better than the crummy old 2 minute noodles made from nothing but stock powder, im especially fond of seafood noodes.
im looking for uncommon or un "western veges and herbs here, like chinese or foreign v's and h's generally used in soups.
so far ive uncovered lovage and shino, to be great, and im trying out okra , all 3 i never even knew existed that are uncommon things you wont find at the supermarket (at least in australia anyway)
does anyone know anything else? like the dried ones in ramen packets, i think there is some sort of fleshy spring onion in there, i just dont know, i want them all. anything that goes well in a salty soup
in short, since asians make the best soups, broths and ect IMO: what are ALL the asian soup fruits, veges and herbs used?
