Recipe by Rick Young
Basically, I took a recipe from one of our foster Vietnamese daughters and amended it to my preference. I hope she doesn't mind but, just in case, I'm not going to tell her!! I really liked the soup but, of course, I'm biased. However, my wife really liked it also and she doesn't think I'm anywhere near as great as I think I am.
