A spicy soup for a cold night!

Top Review by RachelAnn in Japan

This was so tasty. I cut back the spice and even the kids liked it. I made it with Japanese pumpkin (kabocha) leaving the skin on and adding it early in the cooking process. It turned out great, like a stew. It would be good with fresh lemon juice and fresh cilantro if you like that. We served it over good. Lots of leftovers!
