Manchow Noodle Soup

I am on a roll for soup now a days. Its quick and filling and good for you too. Since we are vegetarians and very cautious what we eat, there is not much weight gain issue but eating healthy and stay healthy is a big thing. So I always make sure that we get lot of vegetables and colorful dishes so we can cover all the base. This is very quick soup, once you have done all prep for it, it literally take 5 minutes to make it and then enjoy it. Serve it hot is always better when you have added corn starch in it  because after few minutes it become so thick that you don't enjoy it and one more thing, never keep it on gas for long after adding corn starch it will cook more and thicken , so once you get nice consistency, take off from the gas.
