Thai soup? Me?
I have never been a huge fan of Thai food until recently.
In my opinion, most of it is too overwhelming in one area or another, either too much heat (some heat is good), or the flavor contrasts are disappointing. I hate that – when a dish looks amazing, but the taste is off.
If a dish is that pretty, it should taste good.
Of course, maybe I’ve been going to the wrong restaurants.
I don’t give up on food. Even if I’m not crazy about something, I’ll try to make it at home to give it a chance. I’ll read about the recipe, whatever its origin is, play around with the flavors.
There are lots of things I love when I make them myself, but wouldn’t order out. Chinese is another one (but I do have a crazy affinity for P.F. Chang’s).
I love the coconut milk in this; it balances everything out.
This lovely little soup is a good middle of the road type meal – not a tiny snack but not ridiculously heavy.
Although you could make it as heavy as you wanted by adding more chicken, more veggies, etc.
This was just right for me.
It’s kinda spicy, hearty, a hint of coconut, and a little buttery.
