This vegetarian tom yum soup recipe is light, flavourful, spicy and hearty all at the same time. A mix of meaty Asian mushrooms are poached in a fragrant broth of lemongrass and lime leaves and soured (Steamed Mix Vegetables)
This is a vegetable version of the classic Thai Tom Yum soup. You can find lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, and galangal (a close relative of ginger) at any Asian supermarket. If you can't find the lime leaves, you can add extra lime juice to taste, but do try to find the lime leaves because they make a big difference. It tastes just like my local Thai restaurant!
