This was really delicious and fairly easy to put together, although it was very soupy. I doubled the recipe, and used Japanese eggplant fresh from the farm! I could not find the lime leaves, but added a dash of fresh lime juice. When it came time to add the broth, I ended up only added 4 cups (instead of 6) and probably could have used just 2-3 to make it less soupy. I served this with some jasmine rice. This has wonderful flavor and will be made again. Made by a Tasty Tester for ZWT9.
