Thai Fragrant Vegetable Soup
- In a deep saucepan, heat garlic in oil until fragrant; add broth, soy sauce, fish sauce, cabbage, carrots, celery, mushrooms, lemongrass, and chilies.
- Bring mixture to a boil; then reduce heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
- Adjust seasonings for soy sauce, and fish sauce; then add lime juice and basil; serve.
- Note: As an option you may also add cooked chicken, cooked beef or pork, or raw shrimp to this soup at the end of cooking; for shrimp, just allow enough time for them to turn opaque and curl tight; for meat, just heat through.
