I love Thai food. The flavours are always so fresh and vegetables are often the star. Tom Yum is one of the cooked dishes I will eat if I am going out to dinner with friends and there are no raw options. It’s still all vegetables in a light spicy broth. But making a raw version of Tom Yum or Tom Kha is so easy to do at home. The main difference between the two is just the coconut which is used in Tom Kha. So if you are looking for a fat-free version just leave it out and perhaps add extra tomato for a Tom Yum version.
One Thanksgiving I told my mother that I could make any dish that she could name into a raw dish. It took her no time at all to reply, "French's Green Bean Casserole." I said, "I will find a way."
Guess what, mom? I did it...
From Ani’s Raw Food Kitchen by Ani Phyo. This is absolutely my favorite cream soup.
This summer I tried my favourite marrow soup in raw version. (Hungarian soup is thicker than other nation's versions and it is made of one vegetable with milk or sour cream usually and it is thickened with flour)
This soup, invented last night in a flurry of inspiration, is indescribably delicious. Just one spoonful will send your taste buds into paroxysms of euphoria. I’m not kidding. Prepare to be transfixed. Warning: If you generally prefer sitting down to eat, get settled at table before tasting or you may never make it! I finished my bowl standing up, it was that good.
