Stir Fry Soup

Every now and then I like to try something different, like this Stir Fry Soup. Presented with an overabundance of vegetables in the refrigerator and a desire to clear out some of the other lesser-used items (like oyster sauce) in my stockpile it seemed like the right time to experiment with an Asian inspired dish.

One of the great things about this Stir Fry Soup is that it benefits greatly from the crisp textures of the carrots and snow peas, meaning cooking time is quick, making it a great dish to try, even in summer. The addition of the oyster sauce and lime, both typically seen in Thai cooking, give the soup a unique and well balanced flavor without being overpowering.
