vegetarian tom yum hed vegetarian tom yum hed

This spicy tom yum soup is not just for vegetarians. The clear broth soup is thick with flavor and spices. The lime juice perks up the soup, it's so refreshing. The aroma of lemongrass, galangal and kaffir lime leaves made my kitchen and the whole house smell so good.

One word of caution about eating any tom yum, don't eat the lemongrass or galangal even though they are often served with the soup. They are there to flavor the soup. The kaffir lime leaves do the same job but they're chewable. Most people go for the mushrooms and the broth.

3-4 Servings, Prep Time: 5 Minutes, Total Time: 15 Minutes

Tips and Techniques

  • Use water, not vegetable broth. The broth should have mushroom flavor, not other veggies.
  • Use any assorted mushrooms that have mild flavor and soft texture. I would not recommend using shitake because of their strong flavor or earwood because of their texture.
  • Galangal: You may need more or less galangal depending on how mature the root is. If you get a mature root, the flavor is stronger and vice versa.
  • Use the amounts of salt, vegetarian chili paste and lime juice as a guide. You may like it hotter and more sour than my taste. 
  • Use red chili peppers, not green, so that eaters can easily pick them out if they want. 
  • Your broth will be influenced by the vegetarian chili paste. You may need to adjust seasonings.
