Your Weekend Recipe - Tom Yum Inspired Soup

Being in Thailand right now, I'm obviously eating a lot of Thai food - beside the eggs at brekkie and a few other things. So in keeping to the theme of where I am right now, I've hunted down a great recipe from Ani Phyo -- a raw Tom Yum inspired soup that is delish and super quick to make.

What you're gonna need:


1/4 cup shallots, thinly sliced
1/2 cup straw mushrooms, sliced
3 Tbsp green chillis, chopped
1/4 cup lime juice
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

Soup Base:

2 cups coconut meat, from oung Thai coconuts
1 tsp garlic
5 kaffir lime leaves
1/3 cup coconut oil
2 Tbsp lemongrass, chopped, lower stalks only
1 tsp sea/rock/himilayan salt
3-4 cups filtered water, as needed


2 Tbsp coriander


+ Marinate the toppings by placing them all in a bowl and set aside for 10mins

+ Put all soup base ingredients into a good blender with 1 cup of the water, and blend well. Add the remaining water, and blend until smooth.

+ Serve into 4 bowls, add the toppings and garnish to serve.

A coconutty-soup always tickles my taste-buds and totally grounds me and warms my heart. I had one for dinner last night in fact - with salted crab and dang that was good!
