Soup Name: Vegetarian Snow Pear and Corn Soup

Traditional Chinese Name: 雪梨玉米湯 (xuě lí yù mǐ tāng)


This simple, clean and very sweet soup is great for people with sore throats or heaty bodies.  You can actually drink it cold or hot and it’s ideal for all seasons.  I’ve decided to go meatless because I wanted to drink it cool and it turned out fabulous.  Fat free, oil free and made with all natural ingredients, it’s great for kids and adults alike.
