This soup is really good. I was skeptical about the lettuce, it didn't make a lot of sense to me to put cold lettuce in hot soup, so I used spinach like other reviewers and it was actually really good. Along with celery I added mushrooms and yellow onions. Upon reading a review that the celery was too crunchy, I cooked all the vegtables with the oil and spices, before adding the chicken or the chicken broth so they wouldn't be so crunchy. Also, I have never had luck finding chile paste at the grocery store, so I substituted it with sweet chile sauce and it worked great. I used ramen noodles but might try spaghetti noodles next time. This is a nice recipe to make if you have extra vegetables you don't know what to do with, as this recipe could be made using a lot more vegetables than it calls for. It smells good and tastes great.
