Thai Tom Kha Ghai


I made my first Thai soup, I have been wanting to make this soup for so long. I saw lime leaves so thought why not!
It was actually really easy to make and truly delicious Jasmine finished of the bowl I was taking a picture of in minutes! but what a healthy afternoon snack it made.

Ingredients:
  • One can of coconut milk
  • 2 cups of water
  • 8 keffir lime leaves
  • shredded ginger about 2 tablespoons
  • 2 tablespoon of fish sauce
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • some snap peas
  • a few cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup shrimp
  • one teaspoon of red chili flakes
  • 2 tablespoon shredded lemon grass
  • one teaspoon of Thai garden spice by Urban Accents
Method:
  1. add the coconut milk and water and bring to the boil
  2. then add all the other ingredients and simmer for 20 minutes
It is that simple, I think the key is the lime leaves and the lemon grass

Enjoy...
What's your favorite soup?
