This really easy soup is a welcome change in the vegetarian repertoire.  With familiar, yet bold flavours, it makes for a great weeknight meal as a quick dish that brightens your senses. Add rice or your favourite asian noodle to bulk it up.  You could even experiment with different kimchi styles for something different!
