Default Tom Yum Soup - FANTASTIC!

Tom Yum Soup - FANTASTIC!


Recipe Description
A great spicy soup that is really tasty. I eat this soup most days, it is great to take to work for lunch, quick and easy! 
Ingredients:
raw prawns or chicken (allowance)
2-3 slices of fresh ginger (vege allowance)
2-3 slices lemon rind
Mushrooms (vege allowance)
tomato (vege allowance)
2 cloves of garlic (vege allowance)
fresh red chilli (vege allowance)
2/3 cup water
2/3 cup sprite zero
sprinkle dried mint
sprinkle dried coriander
salt & pepper 
Preparation Steps:
I find that if I use a food processor or pound the garlic, ginger and chilli in a mortor & pestle, that I get a much more flavoursome soup than cutting - but if you can't be bothered with the extra washing up - cutting is fine!! 
Level of Difficulty:
Easy 
Time Needed:
5 mins - quick & easy 
Serves:
Instructions:
dice the tomato and mushrooms
place into a saucepan
crush the garlic
dice ginger - really small
cut chilli - very small, if the larger red chilli I put in seeds and all.
all all other ingredients except the prawns or chcken
Bring to the boil - simmer for 10 mins
Add the prawns or chicken
Simmer for another 3-5 mins until they are cooked.
Remove lemon rind before serving
enjoy!

Oh Alison
You and I are talking about a completely different tom yum. I make the one out of the recipe book, but simply must add 2 tabs of sweetener to get the sweet sour connection.
This one is on the menu tonight - will compare and give you my feedback!!
I am sure it will be lovely even though I will use powdered ginger and fresh coriander
Thanks for that!!

RT - I look forward to hearing your feedback. I went and had a look at the back of the cohens book, and yes it is very different..... I look forward to hearing how you get on. I use sprite zero in this for the sweetness, which I enjoy - I haven't used any sweetner tabs, they scare me a bit as to which are the best etc - so I just use sprite zero for all my sweetner.
This soup came from the Äll Natural Diet Recipe Book"did you see the link for this on the forum - it is FANTASTIC!!! (if you can't find it send me a private message with your email and I will email it to you)
Looking forward to your comments
xx

P.S how did the new clothes go - send me a message! xx

Hey Alison
Tried your version last night and the verdict....
Well although I enjoyed it, I didnt appreciate the sprite-y taste in it. I think they are both similar to a real tom yum but made in different thai takeaways, if you know what I mean.
I think having real ginger in there would make a big difference - which I didnt have.
I think I will stick with my original from the last page of the cookbook, but will play with a few tune ups - sort of like a hybrid of the two. For example, the lemon flavour was great in yours, so will add that, and decrease vinegar.
I also dont like the concept of using sweetener - I use the hermesetas brand - but in this recipe I prefer the fake sweetness of those to the lemonade, whereas in meatballs recipe - wow, you cant beat the sprite!!
So, there we go - I am creating a new tom yum tonight with all the changes I just mentioned - I am sure it will be lovely
Question:
Does the chicken go hard after sitting in the soup all the way until lunch for you?
Thanks for posting the recipe - yeah, I downloaded the recipe book - just havent mae anything from it..will start trying some different things.
Thanks!!

Hi RT - I have been playing around with Tom Yum for lunch today!
I made the recipe out of the back of the book, and really liked it as well. I think you are right about the sprite, it is quite sweet, so maybe I will add more water and reduce the sprite. I like using the fresh ginger, fresh garlic and a chilli, it really adds to the flavour!
Good luck with your "playing!"
xx

Tried this recipe with Chicken today and really loved it, will try the one out of the back of the book and do a comparison.
But this is something that I will be making in the future.
Thanks for sharing
Wendy

This was fantastic Noddy! I used a teaspoon of Splenda instead of the sprite and made room for some boc choy. It's a new favorite
