Mushroom Tom Yum (veg) ต้มยำเห็ด – Hot Thai Kitchen!

Posted: Friday, July 22, 2016

Another treat for my vegetarian fans that I promise will satisfy my meat eaters as well! I was determined to develop a great recipe of our famous tom yum soup for my vegetarian fans, and after trying out several things, I am proud to announce that this version was so good even I was surprised! Mixed mushrooms are the trustworthy meat substitute Thai people turn to when making a vegetarian dish, and there are so many types to choose from so take your pick! (But don’t pick the button mushroom!) Light but bursting with flavour, and the citrusy tartness is balanced by subtle natural sweetness. This easy soup will please even the most carnivorous among us 🙂
