can't use: milk, gluten or soy

Not all of this was for the allergies some were just tweaks that I wanted to try and ingredients that I had on hand. So I did this:

- in place of half of the carrots I used sweet potato
- in place of soy sauce I used salt
- in place of red pepper flakes I used Szechwan peppercorns and a few dashes of crystal hot sauce (final result still wasn't as spicy as last time)
-in place of sugar I used honey
-in place of chicken broth I used some pork stock that I had on hand

So without the milk this is not going to be quite as velvety but it was nice. But I wanted to add some texture anyway so I added some crumbled ground beef cooked with just black pepper, and some green onion. Final result was very good. I think I personally would prefer it with the milk but this came out really good on its own and for the ingredients limitations this is a winner. I tripled the recipe and the total amount of ground beef added was minimal. About the equivalent of 1 small hamburger patty. I used three whole green onions sliced very thin. And I was careful not to add too much sesame oil as I did last time.
