Although I used parsley instead of cilantro (since my daughter does not like it) which likely contributed to the extremely mild flavor, next time I would keep the ginger and lemongrass in the broth for flavor instead of removing before adding other ingredients. I would just cut it smaller. I might also add a little chili paste to it.
