  • Sesame oil
  • Mushroom powder
  • Garlic
  • Lime juice

Alternatively, you could try more creative toppings like parmesan cheese and herbs. Any ingredients you add should complement the flavor of the broth, and you’ll want to carefully consider how they will create balance in your dish.

4. Tests of Time: Tradition Doesn’t Lie
