"It is impossible to think of any good meal, no matter how plain or elegant, without soup or bread in it." -M.F.K. Fisher
This is a great balance of flavors and when I was working in the recipe it took a few tries to get the flavor right. It just tasted thin and adding the vinegar and a bit of honey made all the difference. I could have added a lot of extra salt, and that might have worked, but not as well as balancing the flavors to get to the combination of sweet, salty, and sour that brings out the ginger and carrot flavor.
