  • Summary

    This tom kha soup (Thai coconut soup) is absolutely perfect. Rich and creamy yet tangy and salty, this Thai soup is filling but light and positively bursting with flavor. The very best recipe I've ever made or tried. Whole30, paleo, and vegan options offered.

    Ingredients

    • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
    • ½ of one onion (sliced)
    • 2 cloves garlic (chopped)
    • ½ of one red jalapeno pepper (sliced, or a couple Thai chiles, halved)
    • 3 ¼-inch slices galangal or ginger
    • 1 lemongrass stalk (pounded with the side of a knife and cut into 2-inch long pieces)
    • 2 teaspoons red Thai curry paste
    • 4 cups chicken broth (see Notes if vegan or on Whole30)
    • 4 cups canned coconut cream or coconut milk (see Notes)
    • 2 medium chicken breasts (cut into bite-sized pieces, see Notes for vegan/vegetarian or to use shrimp)
    • 8 ounces white mushroom caps (sliced)
    • 1-2 tablespoons coconut sugar (if on Whole30, see Notes)
    • 1 ½ - 2 tablespoons fish sauce (plus more to taste, see Notes if on Whole30 or vegan)
    • 2-3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
    • 2-3 green onions (sliced thin)
    • fresh cilantro (chopped, for garnish)
