    Oooo Vixtress, do you have a recipe? My friend and I always goto the local thai restaurant and he orders it every time, loves it! Would be good to pass a recipe on

    Thanks
    its really easy but my measurements are a bit vague as i just bung it all in:
    in a pan put:
    a couple of pints of good chicken stock
    a couple of kaffir lime leaves
    a couple tbs thai fish sauce
    1 0r 2 tbs soy sauce
    1 or 2 tbs lime juice
    a couple sticks of lemon grass
    either fresh chopped chilli or chilli flakes tsp
    handful chopped mushrooms
    handful cooked chicken or prawns
    handful of fresh corriander to serve
    (thai noodles arent authentic but make it more filling so are optional)
    i sometimes add garlic and fresh ginger but not always
    simmer them all together and serve!! the thais serve it as a restorative broth to heal the blood!!!!!!!!

    i am seriously addicted to this

  • Just read your thread as I simmer my version on the stove!! actually I am having a thicker version made with tinned tuna served with rice but I do make it as soup too with chicken or prawns/king prawns and have with prawn crackers

    My recipe is much the same as yours but I usually put in mangetout or sugar snap peas and baby sweetcorn and sometimes green or red pepper and I dont use coriander cos i dont like it! I add the tin of tuna chunks right at the last minute and just heat them through and then they dont break up too much, its my fave tea, o/h and dd are having domino pizza (on offer two for one at the mo) and I prefer my thai concoction!!!:D

    ooh forgot to mention I do use a bit of creamed coconut (fattening but yummy!)

  • Here is a recipe for Tom Kah Soup, not made it but it looks and sounds delicious and easy to make:

    (You can use chicken or prawns and 'cilantro' is coriander, by the way) :)

    they look great, just what i was looking for, think i will have a go but use 'light' coconut milk to reduce the calories a bit

    http://www.thai4uk.com/index.html this also looks a good site, they go authentic stuff but also stuff like powdered lemon grass and powdered coconut milk, these must save money i think, use only what you need with no waste. think i will place a big order when i get paid this week (postage is £4.50 for up to 20kg!!) the stuff all keeps for ages so i think it will be worth my while.

    will keep you updated whether its any good,

  • Bit of a moneysaving tip here in terms of using a can of coconut milk.

    When cooking for two, one can is too much for a thai curry, so we buy the packets of creamed coconut instead. You just put a couple of teaspoons into boiling water (depending on how much you need) and voila! coconut milk!

    This works out cheaper than buying the tins and there is less waste too.
  • Have you tried Miso soup cos thats my latest thing and its lovely, you can make it into a ramen soup by adding noodles and chicken/fish/prawns and lots of veg, I bought some on Japanese Kitchen online shop its a sort of margarine tub full of paste which you mix with boiling water to make the soup I love Japanese food and you can get all sorts of fab ingredients on there.
