Manchow Soup is a delicious spicy Indo-Chinese appetizer that can be accompanied alongside some noodles or Chinese fried rice. This soup is made by simmering finely chopped vegetables in soya sauce and other pantry ingredients, with ginger and garlic added for that extra burst of flavour.

The recipe of this manchow soup is vegetarian and vegan but can be made even healthier and protein-rich by adding some boiled pieces or shredded chicken. You can also add tofu as a vegan protein element.

This flavourful umami tasting soup is usually served with some crispy fried noodles (chowmein) alongside other Chinese dishes.
