TOM KHA GAI (Thai coconut soup)
I think my favorite soup besides Matzo ball is Tom Kha Gai (Thai coconut soup).
I found this recipe and it's easy and so delish! Thanks to Kahakai Kitchen for this recipe.
1 can (14oz) coconut milk (you can use light to cut down the fat)
1 can (14oz) reduced-sodium chicken broth
6 quarter size slices of fresh ginger
Cut 1 stalk of fresh lemongrass into 1 inch pieces.
1 cup sliced mushrooms ( I used shitake)
1/2 cup frozen peas
1 Tbs lime juice
1 Tbs Fish sauce
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp of Thai Chili paste (I used Sriracha)
