Fantastic authentic Thai hot and sour soup. Ideal as a starter in a Thai meal. Not very filling, but a great appetizer. Very quick and easy to prepare. The tom yum paste is hot, so try the soup before adding the chile and decide if any extra heat is required. Do not attempt if you do not have fresh coriander, as this is vital!

I have used this same recipe for two years now and it is the best. I have not used basil or coriander with it though but I will try it next time. Refreshing with the lemongrass and sinfully spicy. Great recipe!

mmmmm...YUMMY! Tastes like the Tom Yum at the Thai Restaurant that will charge you 4 bucks for a small bowl full. I was impressed, not that difficult either. I used low sodium canned chicken broth and substitued tofu instead of chicken and it was fantastic!
