I ate my first bowl with nothing. I enjoyed sipping the hot broth and the sourness cleared my throat very nicely. The green vegetables came from my vegetable garden. No, they are not fresh, they were blanched and freeze from last summer or two. DH use to eat them but if he is not hungry, he will not eat anything he is not familiar with.
I used the tamarind soup mix you can buy from any Asian store. There are also the guava soup mix, and santol (?? in English) if they grow locally. Most of this mix, serves the purpose of having sour soup.
Thank you Willa, for featuring my Valentine's Day sugar cookies this week. Willa is the host of Food Trip Friday where this entree belong.
