Tried this at the local annual EFNEP lunch and LOVED it! While my family is no longer receiving SNAP benefits I work with families who do and continue to need to stretch my own families food budget as far as possible. This soup was wonderful. Felt like a pricy trip to a Thai restaurant. I cant wait to make it for my family. I will add cilantro a red chilli paste and substitute fresh ginger to bring it up a notch.
