Thailand is well-known for its many world-famous dishes. From Pad Thai to Tom Yum, many praise Thai delicacies for their unrivaled deliciousness. One of the best delicacies of the Thai taste is their soups. It is guaranteed to not only satisfy your taste buds but also to lighten your mood, especially if you’re having a grimy day.
Here are four of some of Thailand’s best soups that you can make for any occasion:
1. Tom Yum
The world-famous Tom Yum has its fair share of other soups trying to imitate the glory of this dish. However, if you want the best, you will need the recipe for Tom Yum itself. It is a mix of coconut milk, lime or lemon, and lemongrass, a very potent and tasty combination. Not only will it fill your tummy, but it is also going to make your day. Feeling drained from a day’s worth of work? Grab yourself a lovely bowl of Tom Yum.
The versatility of this dish is unmatched as well and can be filled with all kinds of meats to satisfy any meat-lover out there. Of course, vegetarians will be pleased to know that Tom Yum is also a very famous vegetarian dish. Substitute the meat with mushrooms, and you have yourself a fulfilling soup, awesome enough that even certified meat-eaters will appreciate.
2. Thai Chicken Soup
Thai Chicken Soup, known as Tom Ka Gai by the locals, has its very distinct Thai taste to it. If you’re wondering what the Thai taste is, it is sweet, sour, spicy, and salty combined. Exceptionally great during cold winter months, Thai Chicken Soup is guaranteed to warm your heart and your immune system, warding off the cold that is out there to ruin your holidays.
Having an upcoming party to celebrate Christmas? Boil some up as an appetizer or even as the star of the show. We guarantee you that everyone will love it so much, they’ll be begging for your recipe.
3. Noodle Soup
Need a little more heft to your soups? Add a little noodle to your broth of lemongrass and coconut milk, and you’ve got yourself a wonderful Noodle Soup dish. There are two ways to make this recipe, one with chicken called the Chicken Noodle Soup and a vegetarian alternative. If you’re looking for a gluten-free dish and one that’s vegan-friendly, we strongly recommend the Vegetable Noodle Soup that utilizes tofu instead of chicken.
4. Thai Pumpkin Coconut Soup
