💡 Egg Roll Soup Recipe Top Tip
This is a very straightforward recipe that's basically fail-proof. But, if you're new to Asian cooking, you'll want to experiment with sesame oil and sriracha.
Both of these ingredients have bold flavors, so you'll want to start with the recommended amount that's in the recipe. You can add more once you taste it and are familiar with it.
