  • Soy Sauce: Soy sauce adds umami and depth to the soup. It enriches the broth with its savory flavor, enhancing the overall taste of the dish.
  • Corn Flour: Corn flour serves as a thickening agent for the soup. It helps to create a luscious and velvety texture, ensuring that the broth is hearty and comforting.

Expert Tip: To make the soup even heartier, you can add cooked noodles or rice to the broth along with the vegetables.
