Thai Shrimp Soup with Rice
Heat the oil in a large saucepan until very hot. Add the red pepper and hot pepper flakes; cook, stirring, for 1 min. Add the broth and water; bring to a boil. Stir in the shrimp and simmer for 1 to 2 min. Stir in the ginger, lime juice and sesame oil.
Divide an equal portion of the rice, cilantro and bean sprouts between four bowls. Ladle in hot soup. Serve with lime wedges, if desired.
