Green Curry Coconut Lime Soup

Rated as 3 out of 5 Stars

"Creamy soup with mild spice and a zip of citrus. It is inspired by Tom Kha Gai from Laotian and Thai cuisines, but it comes together quickly from ingredients that are easily and routinely available--real Tom Kha needs fresh lemon grass, kaffir lime leaves, and galangal root, which are not always available in my locale."

  2. Ladle soup into bowls and garnish with remaining green onion.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Substitute firm tofu for the chicken if desired.

Tasted okay, but didn't feel very authentic. Easy recipe.
