I am eating this now out of the freezer so its been a while since I originally made it. Somehow I added too much salt which was my own fault. I like the ginger in the dish but I did not add the bacon. Maybe they would clash? When I make this again with the right amount of seasonings I may update the review.

sorry, didnt work for me. The texture was sticky and thick, the soup seemed to have conflicting flavors. Even with the addition of 2 full cups of water it still wasnt quite "there". I might toss it. 2 stars because it IS etible, and maybe this was just a personal taste issue...?
