A favorite at our house. Great for those dinner-in-a-hurry nights.

As a vegetable soup with nice fresh tastes, it paired well with some southwestern-style egg rolls. I think the flavors needed to meld longer, so if I made it again, I would add the green paper with the rest of the ingredients, simmer it for 10-15 minutes, and add the peas and cilantro at the very end.
