Japanese Mushroom, Tofu and Vermicelli Soup

When I tried this recipe I was surprised, it was so damn tasty the umami flavour lingers in your mouth it becomes so addictive, honestly I can replace any chicken soup with this one. What good is that this is not just delicious, it’s healthy and very easy to prepare all you need to do is dump them into the pot. You don’t believe me, I dare you then to try it out first.
