The international food aisle can be overwhelming, no? It’s hard enough to read the labels of food you normally buy, much less a list of ingredients you can’t pronounce. This Thai-inspired soup recipe meets you right in the middle, gently steering you toward more exotic flavors but with familiar ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry.

|1||red or orange bell pepper|
