    Good, healthy soup and excellent when on a budget. I added extra ginger and some orange juice. If you prefer an extra kick like my housemate add some chilli or Tabasco. - 09 Dec 2011

    Lovely tasty soup & easy to make. I added one dried birds eye chilli to give it a bit of a kick & also a bit of salt & plenty of freshly ground pepper. - 16 Feb 2012
