Sometimes you are finding some interesting recipes in the weekly supermarket leaflets, which are tempting you to try them out. This specific recipe on Thai inspired soup I found in a leaflet from Fakta, a Danish discount supermarket.
The soup is very, very easy to make and it is ready within ½ hour. Also it is putting an effective end to a empty/hungry stomach. However, from a taste view point I would prefer a more spicy taste, so for a second round in my soup bowls, I think I would increase the level ginger and chili, perhaps as well to use the peel of the lime and topping the soup with fresh coriander.
