This is a simple soup with fabulous flavor from the February 2006 issue of Gourmet magazine. They suggest that you can make this vegetarian by using vegetable broth.

I used curry paste instead of powder and served the soup with chicken. The flavor was a little heavy for me at first, so I added the juice of one lime and about half a tablespoon of soy sauce to lighten it up and make it a little more "Thai". The result was delicious and I'll definitely be making it again!
