Super-fast Thai Soup

28 Jan

I was starving this afternoon and had some Thai-like ingredients hanging around so I came up with a not-particularly-authentic (but delicious!) Thai soup:


  • 2 cups mild-tasting vegetable stock
  • 1/2 can organic coconut milk
  • 1 lemongrass stalk, bruised/cut (but not sliced, for easier retrieval afterward!)
  • 1 inch ginger, grated
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 squirt Sriracha (about 1/2 – 1 tsp, or to taste; some people love their heat!)
  • half a 227g/8 oz package of brown (Cremini or other) mushrooms
  • 1 small red bell pepper
  • 1/3 454 g/16oz block of tofu, cut into tiny cubes
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp vegan worcestershire sauce (optional)

Combine first 5 ingredients and bring to a boil. Add the Sriracha, mushrooms, pepper and tofu cubes and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the sauce(s) and simmer 5 minutes more. Taste before serving – I don’t put all that much salt in my food, if the soup is too bland for you, go ahead and add a bit more soy sauce 🙂

Ladle into bowls and squeeze a little lime over top if you like, then serve!

C’est tout!
