I didn't find a need to change up the recipe except that I did add just a touch of agave to bring a sweetness to round out the spice and added lime juice.
Simple Thai Noodle Soup
Slightly Adapted from Nigel Slater via BBCFood.com
1 good knob fresh root ginger, peeled and roughly chopped
Notes/Results: Simple and satisfying, this is a good soup as is and would make a nice base for more vegetables. I made the curry pasta in my blender and it was quick and easy. Once you have the components together, this soup comes together in a matter of minutes--making it a perfect and money-saving alternative to Thai take-out. I will happily make it again.

Tina of Squirrel Head Manor brought a classic Vegetable Soup and said, "This is an old recipe originating with my grandmother. She passed it on to my mother who made copious quantities and shared with both sets of grandparents and my Uncle Lew. Everyone loved it and I still do love it today. I make it the same way and my family enjoys it too. Fresh veggies and marrow bones make the difference I think."
Judee of Gluten Free A - Z Blog shared Persian Roasted Eggplant Soup saying,"Is this eggplant soup recipe of Persian or Lebanese origin? I'm not sure, but it's been in our family for many years. It's simple, delicious, and usually a crowd pleaser. We make it two ways: one with just roasted vegetables and the other way we add chickpeas after blending."
Finally from here at Kahakai Kitchen, I made a tasty Potato Salad, jazzed up with a few of my favorite ingredients--capers, cornichons, and sweety drop peppers from the olive bar at my local grocery. It was excellent and was the perfect fix for another recent craving. ;-)
Thank you Tina and Judee for joining me this week!
