  • I used all shrimp,and added tofu - no chicken. It was a little bland for me - didn't have chili paste so used a little tabasco sauce to give it a kick, powdered ginger, a little corriander and miso. Also scallions... YUM - 2/19/11

  • My family loved it! They want **of course** potatoes in it. LOL But I thought it was great as is. Wish I knew how much broth was intended... - 6/10/10

  • My husband and I loved this recipe! Instead of chicken, we added scallops and crab (seafood lovers) and served it over soba noodles. Thank you for sharing! - 2/28/10

  • This sounds wonderful but I'm confused about one thing. Garlic is not included in the ingredients or nutritional info but the instructions mention a garlic bundle.Did I miss something? - 11/18/09
