Recipe: Asian tomato and rice soup
I had to make another rather quick dinner, from the bits and bobs we had in the house last night, before rushing off to a comedy show, so i made another rather nice soup! It's almost a fusion dish really, with tomato not really being added to many chinese/ asian dishes, but it is absolutely scrummy- sweet, tangy and a little bit spicy! If you cant find the wiltshire chilli farm sauce, any sweet chilli sauce of some sort will do!
