Tamarind Soup Mix

So today I decided to visit my favorite Asian market to pick up some ingredients to make spring rolls but as I was walking through the produce department picking up some herbs, this package caught my eye.

Now as some of you may know, it doesn't take a lot to amuse me and today this package was it!
It contained a packet of Knorr Tamarind Soup Mix along with a variety of vegetables and was marked $4.99 and made 8 cups of broth with nearly 2 pounds of vegetables, so I decided to try it.
I'm sure they made a decent profit on it as a separate package of the soup mix was priced at only 49-cents but the thought of dumping everything into a pot and having a meal in 10 minutes sounded like a plan.

The package of soup base was actually a Philippino product that was distributed by Canada.
So I called my Philippino friend and she was very familiar with Sinigang Sa Sampalok Tamarind Soup!
