Cooking when one family member is a vegetarian can be a challenge. One of my sons enjoys meat, and the other son tries to avoid it. They both love Thai food, so when I discovered Swanson Thai Ginger broth in the grocery store this week, with a Thai Chicken Vegetable Soup recipe printed on the back of the carton, I read the directions and decided I would try to please both sons with one recipe.

I cooked the red peppers and carrots as directed. I added the Swanson Thai Ginger broth, and the other ingredients, which included coconut milk, cilantro, lime, and some other things—skipping the step where you add the chicken. I had cooked chicken breasts the night before and cut them up into bite size pieces. I reheated the chicken pieces in the microwave.
