**Chef Tip:**

Aria Moonlight, an esteemed Tower of Fantasy chef, suggests balancing savory umami flavors from eels and mushrooms with subtle ginger spiciness. Feel free to explore various types of mushrooms and soy sauces.


  1. Can I use dried eels? Yes, rehydrate them for at least 2 hours before cooking.
  2. Is this soup spicy? Minimal ginger used does not significantly alter the heat level; consider adding red pepper flakes or chili oil for a spicier version.
