Such a simple soup to make that gets better and better after you make it. Full of aromatics and a bit of spice it is perfect for our Canadian winters.

99% of the ingredients you can get at a regular grocery store but some you may need to visit an Asian market. If you can’t find an Asian market just omit it.
