Vegetable Tom Yum Soup Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 2)
Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
This is an excellent recipe. I turned down the heat substantially because my wife can't eat spicy food. I substituted 3 teaspoons of dried ginger for the galangal slices. I doubled the recipe so the yield was 12 servings. I skipped the lime leaves and lemon grass. I substituted a 4 ounce can of (mild) diced chiles for the hot chile paste. Finally, I cut the fish sauce down to 3 tablespoons. This was a delicious soup for a cold winter dinner.

I followed this recipe exactly and it turned out really great. I was reluctant because I usually go with chicken when ordering this at restaurants, but in the end I felt that the carrots and bok choy made for an excellent alternative.

Very tasty - however, it was too hot for me. Normally, I order medium spice when I order this out... So, I would suggest small additions of the hot chili so that you can get it just right for you. I ended up adding milk (didn't have any coconut milk on hand) and it is still hot but still wonderfully yummy...

I made this last night for a dinner party along with some curry and it was so good! I used ginger instead of galangal because that was all I could find. I went to Thailand about 6 years ago, and besides not having the traditional meat in it, this was very close to what I had there. Great recipe!
