Author Notes

A lot of ingredients, but not a lot of work. Just throw it all in one pot, and feed a crowd, or just your family and have leftovers for a week of healthy soup lunches. It's the kind of soup that tastes better as the days go on, so make it ahead if you'd like! Don't forget to garnish with cilantro and a crunchy chopped peanut! —hardlyhomemade
