    This was a very good, basic soup. We like spicy food, so I think I'll double the chili paste next time. I used brown basmati rice, and Thai red curry chili paste. A few fresh basil leaves and/or a splash of lemon juice might be a fun addition.

    You have got to try this one! I made this for diner last night and it was a big hit. We’re suffering form clods and it cleared our sinuses right up and was delicious. Because different people in my house hold have like different leaves of heat I held back on the chili past and put some in a small container on the table so each person could add more to fit their likening. I did a side salad to go with is this time.

    I have made this recipe for years, with differences: I use a pressure cooker to cook chicken thighs with spices and create my own broth,thereby; defat; then add vegetables and toasted sesame oil. The favorite vegetable to add is Kim Chi, but, bok choy and/or baby spinach leaves work well. A little reheating cooks the veges enough.
