Potential changes & improvements

If you want a thinner soup, you can add more chicken broth. For a thicker soup, add less. You can also add a bit of lime juice for a brightness, or swap out the mint for cilantro.

What other food it works well with

This soup goes well with a green salad and a crusty baguette.

Common Mistakes

Be sure to taste the soup before serving, and adjust the seasoning as needed. The soup can also be a bit too sweet, so add the honey sparingly.
