I made the recipe as written, and loved it. It was a little foamy, I guess, but I let the soup sit (made it Sunday, then took it all week in my lunch) and the foam settled out. FULL of flavor. Delicious flavor. I also made a Thai variation by substituting coconut milk for milk and lime for lemon, and adding a little curry paste (1 tsp, but could've used more). That worked beautifully as well. Will definitely do both versions again.
This soup is quick and easy! If you add a bit of chopped up fresh ginger root, it adds a nice surprise now and then, too.
My family and I were extremely disappointed in this soup. It was too foamy and lacked flavor. Would never make again...sorry!
Five well earned gold stars for this soup Mizz B! For the skim milk I used whole milk. Added a dash of white pepper, too. For presentation I garnished the top of each serving with 1 teaspoon of red onion diced small and a few cilantro leaves. Served along with steamed corn, steamed corn tortillas and fresh fruit for a light, refreshing and delicious summer meal. I will always remember this recipe fondly, Dear Bergy, as it was the first homecooked meal I prepared tonight in our new home.
