This soup has a slightly oriental feel about it, perhaps because of the choice of veggies like mushroom and spring onions, and flavourings like soy sauce and seasoning cubes. It is also quite filling, as potatoes are quite starchy and give the soup a sumptuous texture. Cook in a closed vessel to retain the colour, flavour and aroma of the vegetables.
