      This was delicious. I modified it as we are vegetarian. Shrimp became tofu and we used vegetarian fish sauce (available at SE Asian markets). Also, I used the peppers that are used in Vietnam ... small, red, cayenne peppers.

      Well, I'm sure that I managed to take the 'hot' out of this soup, but really needed to cut back on the amount of jalapenos used to just a little more than half of one! Other than that, though, I did follow the recipe & we very much enjoyed this soup! [Made & reviewed in the ZWT6 Family Picks]

      Delicious soup! I had never worked with lemongrass before; very enjoyable in this. I used all of the garnishes, and we thought all of them really added a great dimension to the soup. Thanks for sharing!
