The first time I made this soup I peered at the finished product and said, "Ugh. Doesn't look too great." Then I actually ate it and changed my tune. It's incredibly flavorful, packed with umani flavors. Some of the ingredients are not ingredients I have on hand on a regular basis, like the seaweed, but I've made this several times and it's just what the doctor ordered on a freezing cold morning.
