Thai Red Curry Tofu Soup

Thai Red Curry Tofu Soup

rayfab 1

"This is a Thai-inspired soup with tofu, mushrooms, coconut milk, and rice noodles. After cooking soup and noodles, do not combine them in one pot since the noodles will absorb all of the broth. If you don't have fresh galangal, use 3 pieces of dried galangal instead."

  1. Bring coconut milk, broth, galangal, lemon grass, and kaffir leaves to a simmer in a large pot over medium heat. Simmer for 15 minutes, but do not allow broth to come to a full boil.
  2. Strain the broth and discard the solids. Whisk in red curry paste, then add tofu, shiitake mushrooms, button mushrooms, lime juice, brown sugar, and turmeric to the soup. Continue simmering until mushrooms have softened, about 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add rice stick noodles, and cook for 3 to 4 minutes until tender; drain. Place drained noodles into individual bowls, then ladle soup over the noodles. Garnish with crushed red pepper flakes.

Ok, the idea here was good. I used the idea and created my own take. I found it wasn't enough broth, so I used two cans of veggie broth and two cans lite coconut milk and the juice of half a lim...

very disappointing

I read the review saying that this recipe didnt make enough broth, so I doubled the amount coconut milk and veggie broth and added about 3 tablespoons of curry paste (I like spicy food). It end...

Lacking in good thai curry flavor to my taste though I used double the curry paste. Perhaps because I used less kaffir and ginger instead of galangal (tip...kaffir leaves are impossible to find...

I think this recipe is mis-named. I would call it Thai tofu and mushroom soup. The red curry flavor is only a small accent. The prominent flavors are the lemongrass and the kaffir lime. Don't sk...
