This recipe is from the Rebar cookbook. Rebar is a fabulous restaurant in Victoria, BC...highly recommended! This is a delicious soup! It's just spicy enough, and very exotic-tasting. I really love the combined taste of ginger and cilantro. I pair a big bowl of soup with a whole wheat pita and a green salad. It can take some time to chop all of the veggies, but it's fun to make on a cold weekend day and the colours and smells are wonderful. I'm a slow cook, so the prep time might be shorter for you.
