    In my experience, cilantro is best added right at the end so it is still crisp and green. If I was making this soup I would omit the sugar. coconut milk is sweet enough. I would use light coconut milk so as to bring the fat grams down and I would use a few slices of fresh ginger, not ground. - 12/15/10
