   1. Cut lemon grass in 2-inch pieces; bruise lightly.

   zest in sauce pan. Simmer, covered, 15 minutes
   (halfway through, taste and remove hot pepper, if
   desired, or leave in longer for more heat).

   to flavor another batch of broth.) Add lime juice,
   salt and pepper.
   
   3. Cut snow peas in thin diagonal strips. With
   vegetable peeler shave 2 inch ribbons of carrot.
   Thinly slice radishes and scallion.
   
   4. Bring soup to a boil: stir in snow peas and carrots
   and boil until just tender --about 1 1/2 minutes. Stir
   in radishes, scallion, and cilantro; bring to a boil.
   Serve at once.
