I love this recipe. It's a great way to introduce people to Thai flavors. In a pinch, I have substituted rice for the clear noodles and cilantro from a squeeze tube for fresh cilantro. Bottled lime juice isn't the same as fresh limes, so avoid that. I am making this right now with leftover chicken. I use homegrown jalapenos that I freeze whole in a baggie, and the amount of heat provided by using the recommended amount is perfectly suited for my tastes. . I always make a double batch, too.

I really liked this soup, but definitely changed a few things to give it more umph and flavor! First, I used chicken broth instead of water...why would you not?! Secondly, I added mushrooms and zucchini (sliced). Finally, I probably tripled the amount of Thai spice/seasoning...I like it spicy!! Also, because I follow a Paleo diet, I sub'd coconut aminos for the soy sauce - gotta keep it legal! With my changes, it was a really yummy and hearty soup, definitely will make again and maybe add some celery next time?
