   In a large non-stick soup pot over medium heat, saute
   garlic in oil until lightly brown.  Add ginger and
   onion, stir for a minute.  Add chicken pieces and fish
   saue and cook for another 3 minutes.  Add rice, water
   and a little salt and pepper.  Cover and simmer in
   medium low heat for about 40 minutes or until the
   consistency of a light ceamed soup has been reached.
   Stir occasionally while cooking.  Correct seasonings
   to taste.  Stir in a small amount of sliced green
   onions.  If rice soup becomes too thick, add a little
   water to thin it a bit.  Garnish individual bowl
   servings with sliced green onions just before
   servings. Tips: If you prefer, sprinkle a little lemon
   juice on the soup servings. This will give a pleasant
   tartness to the dish.  Serves 6 to 8.
