    snickels's Note:

    This is my favorite soup. I've tried it many ways and this is my absolute favorite. It is adapted from "Thai Vegetarian Cooking" by Vatcharin Bhumichitr. I always put too many things in it but this recipe is restrained and beautiful. Serves 4 as an appetizer or 2 as a meal.

    1. 1
      Heat the coconut milk with lemongrass, galangal, kaffir lime leaves, soy, chilis, sugar and stock.

      Simmer with the lid on the pot ten minutes and strain.
    3. 3
      Put strained soup base into.
    4. 4
      Simmer until cauliflower is al dente.
    5. 5
      Remove from heat and lemon juice.
    6. 6
      Stir once, place in bowls and garnish with cilantro.
    7. 7
      (optional) pour a teaspoon of sesame chili oil on top for more kick.
    8. 8
      *I am lucky enough to have a kaffir tree but if you cannot find kaffir leaves use lemon leaves (meyer lemon works well) or lime zest as a last resort.
    9. 9
      **Cauliflower is used in the book and works wonderfully with this soup but i like to mix it up and use mushrooms, tofu, tomatoes, water chestnuts, bell peppers, and even vermicelli noodles.

      LOVED it! I added other veggies too like Broccoli, zucchini, carrots, cabbage, onion & bell pepper. I doubled the liquids to make up for all the added veggies. SOOO GOOD!
