Tom yum soup with shrimp and chicken: This was really good. I put in WAY more chili garlic sauce than the recipe called for since I like things spicy. I also threw in some bottled lemon grass. I didn't have any kafir lime leaves so I used lime zest (1/2 tbsp). I also threw in some bell pepper strips and think I'll probably add snow peas and carrots next time. And I left out the chicken.
This vegetarian tom yum soup recipe is light, flavourful, spicy and hearty all at the same time. A mix of meaty Asian mushrooms are poached in a fragrant broth of lemongrass and lime leaves and soured with lime juice. A spoonful of chili paste is stirred in at the end for a bit of heat to warm you up and you’ve got a nourishing, steaming bowl of soup that’s great for chilly weather.
