I am seriously impressed with this recipe. I stopped by my local Thai grocery after work this evening without a plan, grabbed some things I knew I could find a recipe for, hurried home and searched the internet for "curry, mushrooms, lemongrass" and this recipe is one of the first that popped up. I thought that using lime juice instead of kaffir lime would compromise the flavor, but it was just as fragrant! I omitted the spinach just because I didn't have any, and I replaced the green onions with a leek/shallot mixture, again because I did not have green onions. I also used bean string noodles instead of rice noodles, which you have to make sure you prepare according to the package and not follow the directions on this recipe as they are totally different noodles. Even with all the substitutions and omissions it was delicious! I've had plenty of authentic Thai lemongrass soups and this comes seriously close to authentic-tasting. I will definitely be making this again.
