Besides being tasty, this soup is also low in calories and fat, inexpensive, and very quick to make. The ingredients are ones that I usually stock in my kitchen, but aren't expensive to buy if you don't. They can be used in many other ways, too, so you won't be wasting anything. This soup reheats and freezes well.

everyone at my tennis club asked for the recipe! The oyster sauce seems like a wierd ingredient, but tastes great with the herbs.

This was very good and different. I had lots of zucchini and was wanted a new recipe for pork chops. I didn't add the oyster sauce b/c I don't like the taste of seafood. It was delcious without it.

Excellent soup! I make this for all new moms I know, along with a sald and loaf of bread. It keeps in the freezer and fridge well. If zucchini aren't in season, I use canned artichoke quarters. And for vegetarians, it's great if you just leave out the pork and substitute vegetable broth.
