Tom Kha Soup
Inspired by the family owned Thai Resturant across the block from my apartment. The constant smell of quality Thai food produces crazy cravings for Thai.
2 cup Coconut Milk
1 cup Water
1 cup Mung Bean Sprouts
2 Carrots, Juilenne
½ Red or Green Peppers, Juilenne
1 Scallions, Diced
1 tablespoon red curry paste or equal parts garlic/ginger/lemongrass/hot pepper, Minced
1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
Mix Lemon Juice, curry spice combination, Water, and Coconut Milk. Add the cut vegetables, Mung Bean Sprouts, and Basil Leaves. Allow soup to chill for 15-30 minutes. If coconut milk thickens beyond desired consistancy while chilling, slowly stir in a bit more water to thin.
