I did 5 c chicken broth and 1 can coconut milk instead of 4 c broth 2 c water and 1/2 c sour cream. I also forgot the butter. Other than that I made as written and was surprised at how well it turned out.
i was very pleasantly surprised by this recipe.. didn't feel it needed the sour cream.. wish i would have had the fresh chile peppers.. tried to use dried.. but it didn't work.. yet the soup was still very tasty.. used all cilantro no parsley.. the extra cup of water wasn't necessary for me.. i did blend it and it came out like a nice thick broth.. perfect for sipping.. ty for the recipe UPDATE: came out super tasty with the fresh peppers as expected.. this time i used a combination of zucchini and cucumber.. i cut this recipe in half and used 2 serrano peppers w/o removing the seeds/vein.. used all parsley this time.. used white onion instead of green and fresh ginger.. absolutely loved this and it still didn't need the extra water or sour cream.. ty again for this recipe
Initially made it as written and it was ok. Actually that's not true the only change I made was to use lemon juice instead of lemon grass (not the same I know but I live 25 miles from the nearest Asian market and I had all the other ingredients.) However after playing around with the ingredients this ended up being easily one of the best soups I have ever made. I think the biggest improvement was adding a can of coconut cream -definitely recommend that! I also did my usual thing of using my immersion stick blender on half of the soup. Really awesome! Thanks Dayna!
I made this recipe to accompany a Thai salad and to use up some cucumbers. It is an interesting flavor combo; we thought it was improved by cooling the soup slightly rather than eating it piping hot. I garnished with Stacy's brand thin veggie sticks (sold near salad toppings at your supermarket). Next time I may try adding carrots as others suggested and possibly Thai rice noodles.
Yum! Added more lemon grass and fish sauce added juice from one lime And some kafir lime leaves and skipped the sour cream. What a delicious surprise - and I got to use up some big cucumbers from my garden
