Thai Shrimp Soup - Tum Yum Goong
Yummy Thai Recipes for Vegetarians
Originally this is Tum Yum Goong or Thai Shrimp Soup recipe which I modified to make it a vegetarian dish. It is all up to you to add Shrimp, Chicken or add more veggies.
Thai food is famous all around the world. Originally, Thai-cooking ingredients were seafood, plant and herbs. Traditionally Thai cooking methods were baking, stewing & grilling. Frying, stir-frying and deep-frying were introduced by Chinese food influences.
Rice is staple food in Thailand & only sweet-smelling Thai jasmine rice is used in Thai cuisine. Majority of Thai dishes use lots of Thai chilies, lime juice and lemon grass & other herbs. Several kinds of Curries, green, yellow, red, also stir-fry’s & deep-fry’s. Curries are served with rice or over the rice.
