Tom Kha Soup Recipe

This week we decided to do a lovely Thai soup for our recipe! It's a really simple and fragrant soup full of lemongrass, galangal, and hot peppers. It's also super simple, and the real trick is to add one thing, let it come up to the simmer, and then before it boils, add the next thing. Repeat until everything's been added, and never let it get to the boil and you'll have great flavour extraction for all of the ingredients (also, boiling really wreaks havoc with coconut milk).

We didn't really include it in the video, but we added shrimp to ours, but it is also traditional to use chicken. Also, if you use vegetable or mushroom broth, you can make this vegetarian. Also also, if you can't get a hold of shimeji mushrooms, then oyster mushrooms are very traditional for this kind of soup, and just plain sliced button or crimini mushrooms are delicious in it as well.

4. We had some leftover raw frozen shrimp we wanted to get rid of.

There were 6 of them. We thawed them and tossed them in a little after we had added the onion and tomato. They came out delicious! Soaked up a lot of those aromatics from the broth.

3. Tom Yum soups for me only

Much as I love Thai Salads and soups, I'm allergic to coconut. So only certain recipes I can do, or do without the coco milk. No fun to eat something delicious and have to take two benedryl
So I tried some Tom Yum soups from scratch years ago, resigned to using Tom Yum paste to make it because it's quite a process. Now I haven't made that in years, leaving it to the local professionals
Thanks for sharing anyway!

5. Food allergies are the worst.

I'm fortunate, I don't really have any.
