Tom Yum Noodles Soup
Making this recipe move fast and quickly is one key ingredient that really it’s hard to find a substitute. You can try, but I’m not sure you’ll get the real taste of the noodles and the broth.

Tom Kha Soup
What’s the difference between Tom Yum and Thom Kha. Well, it’s pretty straight forward and easy.
According to Recipe Tin Eats, “The soup broth flavor base is the same, but the key difference is that Tom Kha has chili paste and a splash of coconut milk added. In fact, Tom Kha is the creamy version of Tom Yum…”
Tom Kha Recipe Vegetarian
My version is totally vegetarian. It’s simply the creamy nutrient dense broth and coconut milk then I tossed in some fresh spinach and spring onions,
If you want to add more vegetables, you certainly can. Things like baby bok choy, petite peas, corn, mushrooms would be great. Since we’re steaming the noodles in the bowl with the very hot broth, there’s not a lot of time for some veggies to actually cook. However, if you’re like me, I’m totally fine with crunchy bites of carrots!
Thai Soup Recipe
Flavorings for this soup are at a minimum. You use salt and pepper to your taste.
The two main ingredients that I chose to season are the fish sauce and the gochujang sauce. Both pack a punch.
As Bon Appetite magazine says, there aren’t many ingredients that have ‘show-stopping flavor’ like fish sauce.
So what is fish sauce? Well, it’s flavoring that comes from fish. There’s a process of fermenting the fish for months or years. Small fish, like anchovies, are covered in salt and packed in large barrels. After some time, the bacteria breaks down the fish and what you have is a liquid. Yep, fish sauce. And, I’m telling you, it does give food immense flavor. And, no, it’s not ‘fishy’. Well, unless you sniff the bottle of fish sauce or shrimp sauce! Whew!
Why am I using gochujang? First of all, I’m trying to keep the number of ingredients down. I don’t want you to have a long grocery list to buy. Secondly, I’m using ingredients that you can have in your pantry for other recipes.
Gochujang is a basic in Korean cooking. It’s a red chili paste that packs a subtle punch. There are fermented soybeans in it that give the red chili paste a miso-like ingredient and we get that glorious ‘umami’ flavor!
Easy Thai Coconut Soup
Now, topping this Thai coconut soup is a soft boiled egg! You can choose to do Shoyu Eggs or a regular soft boiled. I’ve got you covered on both. Believe me, it’s a crowning touch, plus it adds more glorious protein and nutrients!
