I did not care for this at all. I had high hopes because I love shrimp and cilantro. Don't know what it was exactly, but I won't make it again.

I am not sure what happened. I didn't have any broth and the flavor is definitely missing something.

I made this soup all the time and it is a family favorite. I do add more broth with added chicken bouillon cubes. I also prefer more lime zest, cilantro and ginger. I just love this soup!

I really enjoyed this soup as it tastes just like a soft spring roll from any Thai restaurant. Even my hubby, who initially thought it wouldn't be so good, ate 2 bowls of it! I followed the recipe as it was written, other than using homemade chicken broth instead of low-sodium, and i wouldn't change anything next time I make it.

Made this several times, with shrimp and chicken. Be mindful of the fish sauce and its potency, as well as the red pepper flakes. I love Asian food and being on the SB Diet, some Asian foods are not recommended, so this really hit the spot.

YUM! I used a little more chicken broth (about 6 cups) so I added addtional hot pepper flakes. I probably WON"T do that again though! A bit too spicy for me. However, the flavors of this were excellent and I loved it. The other substitution I used was chicken for the shrimp. I'm excited to try shrimp the next time around. Great recipe!

MAKE SURE to follow the ingredient amounts exactly. I added a little too much of this and that, and although it tasted good, it was pretty powerful and took a long time to get down.

I can't believe no one has rated this yet! the flavors are fantastic! It is simple and totally figure friendly. I used all fresh ingredients including cilantro and regular cabbage because that is all my grocery store had. Only change I made was to use regular broth and a little soy sauce. Fantastic!
