A classic cooling soup. Feathery fresh rue leaves (chou cao) aren’t easy to get—look for them at the herb stalls in Chinatown Complex market or in pots at plant nurseries—but they really make a difference to the taste of this sweet soup. Although rue smells cheesily pungent when fresh, it transforms in the soup, imparting a fresh, peachy aroma to it.
