Vegan Thai Soup

Minoo selected a Thai theme for this community kitchen. Thai cuisine is aromatic and with a spicy edge.

The first recipe is a Vegan Thai Soup. This is a very easy recipe, get all the vegetables and liquid into a pot and bring to a boil. Then add the tofu and the rest of the of the seasonings.
You can keep this soup in the fridge for up to 5 days in a sealed container or you can freeze it.

  • 1/2 julienned red onion
  • 1/2 julienned red bell pepper
  • 5 mushrooms, sliced
  • 5 cloves of garlic, finely minced
  • 1/2-inch piece of ginger root, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1/2 Thai chili or any other chili, finely chopped
  • 2 cups vegetable broth or water (we used chicken broth)
  • 1 14-ounce can coconut milk (400ml)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut, cane or brown sugar
  • 10 oz firm tofu, cubed (275g)
  • 1 tablespoon tamari or soy sauce
  • juice of half a lime
  • a handful of fresh cilantro, chopped
