Tom Yum Thai Soup
This was a really delicious soup that I made with the Tom Yum soup kit I purchased from the Chinese supermarket. You could also purchase the ingredients separately and it’s so easy and simple to make.
tom yum soup kit –
1 x veggie stock cube
2 cups of mixed vegetables, I used red peppers, carrots and broccoli
4 x lemongrass stalks
1 piece of galangal
5 -6 lime leaves
2 x red chillies (really hot)
Green Thai curry paste (optional)
salt and pepper
1 handful of chopped coriander
Bring to the boil the stock cube and about 6-800mls of water, you can add more or less depending on the amount of vegetables you put in. Next add the galangal, chopped chillies, and lime leaves. Simmer for five minutes then add a soy sauce to taste and green Thai curry paste to taste if you wish. I also added a dash of almond milk at the end. Sprinkle with chopped coriander.
