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.
