Recipe by Fairy Nuff

A good, spicy, filling soup. This is the only soup I can make that my family will accept as a meal - we love the Thai flavours of lime, coriander, fish sauce and coconut....mmm!

What can I say? It's wonderful! Very easy to make, full of spice, crunchiness and flavor. It was nice to have a cup measurement for the fresh coriander, instead of "1 bunch." Thank you very much for sharing another excellent recipe with us.
