Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is a quick school night soup recipe that they all like.
I keep ginger in the freezer in a container and grate it into recipes - skin and all. Much easier than mincing, and it keeps for ages. I keep Thai chilis in the same container. I can add a little to my bowl without freaking Molly out.
Alternatively, omit the ginger and cumin and add thyme. Also yummy. More kid friendly.
