Easy Bamboo Shoot Soup

by Shara Ng
The recipe is from Sugar Megnolia:  "It is originally from a Chinese cuisine cook book, but originally it was a bit bland, so I added a touch of Sichuan to it. I really think it tastes great, with a bit of a kick to it, and it is good served as a side to just about any Chinese dish. :) Comes together really quick and is quite light."
