Some Information About Szechwan Soup

I never thought making this soup is so easy. I took only about 15-20 minutes to make it. I had some homemade Szechwan sauce left over, and I thought making a hot veggie soup would be perfect for this monsoon weather. I started making the soup.

I had some carrot, beans, capsicum, tomato, and tender baby corns. I used all these veggies in this recipe. The Szechwan soup came out superb. It was hot, spicy, and delicious. I share the recipe below.
