Most nations have their own version of Stew or Broth. It seems to have been a staple of diet for as long back as you care to go, and Wales is no different. The Welsh word for Broth is "Cawl" (pronounced like "Cow" with an L on the end). Cawl was the dish most likely to be served down on the farm during the winter months in Wales. This recipe became more or less the standard Cawl recipe as used across much of Wales in the early 20th Century.
Asian Pork and Ginger Soup. This is not the recipe I used, and I did a few things quite differently -- used bok choy instead of Chinese cabbage, added green onion and cilantro, cooked vermicelli noodles and did so separately from the from the soup -- but this recipe looks similar in essence/taste. Very hearty, quick, and healthy soup! I would add carrots next time, and **much** less pepper, but it was delicious.
Ginger-Carrot Soup recipe from Guy Fieri via Food Network | Yum!! The hardest part of this is peeling & chopping the carrots and potato. I added half a can of coconut milk at the end for flavor and a creamier texture. Didn't bother with the yogurt/pine nut topping, we just used oyster crackers.
