This was so easy and quick to make, while being packed with flavors.  Also, the broth was slightly thicker, which I liked.

I calls for Thai Seasoning blend, which I wasn’t able to find.  So, I had to wing it.  I used this recipe as a foundation, but mostly ended up adding the listed ingredients that I had on hand in portions that made sense to me.
