Loved this dish!!! Found chopped frozen lemongrass at my local Asian food market as a sub to dried since they didn’t carry. Worked well.

When you say Thai spice blend do you mean red curry paste?

Made this last night and it was fantastic! I used coconut milk as suggested by some. Added oyster mushrooms and used broccoli rather than cauliflower. The market was out of snow peas so didn’t have those. Your link for Thai Spice Blend isn’t working so I wasn’t sure what that was and there wasn’t a specific item like that at the Asian Pacific Market. I purchased a Thai Soup Paste figuring that was close enough. If anyone uses a soup paste, remember that Thai spices are HOT. I started with the suggested 3 Tbs. and had to scoop some out very quickly because it set my mouth on fire! I probably used about 1.5 Tbs. and it was still a bit spicey hot. One question about the recipe. It says, one baby bok choy. One leaf? One bundle? I used most of a bundle of leaves. This soup was absolutely delicious. Thank you for the recipe!

We absolutely loved this soup. I added about 8 raw shrimp. And cooked a few chicken tenders for a bit of protein to add for my husband. Loved the veggies & the broth

Sorry that others are gatekeeping healthy eating! A+ work using an amazing recipe full of nutrients and fiber and tweaking it to fit your families eating habits.

I would definitely invite you to try out meatless Mondays and explore all the awesome plant based proteins available these days!

I think you’re missing the point by adding meat. You may want to research what the “whole foods plant based” drs think about the myth around meat and protein.

Just add Thai Kitchen Red Curry Paste instead of making Thai Spice Blend.

Absolute delicious. I did substitute a few things. Green beans: used a can for French cut. Onions: I added a chopped sweet onion also -small. Broccoli: I used a cup of frozen. SOOOO good! Bok choy: I only had a large one so I chopped it up. Worked great, though not a pretty as the picture 😉 I also seared some chopped tofu (In water)! I topped it off with just under a 1/4 of chopped cashews. If I were trying to lose weight I would leave those off! Very delicious!

Absolutely delicious! It did not look like the picture above but the flavor was great. For the Thai Spice Blend, I used a frozen kaffir lime leaf, frozen ginger, and lemongrass paste. I was out of the plant based milk. Still, it was good!

I don’t know what I did wrong but mine ended up looking like soggy noodles with vegetables. I even added an additional 2 cups of vegetable broth! The flavor was good but I was really looking forward to more of a soup and was disappointed.

Nice recipes but can you publish using grams or ml. Universal measures are better, what on earth is a “cup”

The recipe is called “Thai Spring Noodle Soup” on the app. It took me a while to find it.

Hi Janet
If you scroll up to the top of the page where it gives you prepping and cooking time, along that line there is an icon for printing and it allows you to print the full recipe after you supply your email address.
Good luck

This turned out beautifully! It was delicious! We even took a bowl to our adult son who lives a few miles away and wasn’t feeling well. He said it felt good in his belly and the next morning his sore throat was gone!

Hi I am making this tomorrow; what kind of plant-based milk do you recommend for this soup? Coconut milk?

Many people do not want to eat the fat in the coconut milk, one ‘hack’ that is popular if you want a coconut flavor is to use oat or soy or almond milk, and add coconut extract for flavor.

You can choose whatever you want. We don’t all have the same likes and dislikes. You have to tune into yourself. It sounds like you don’t use plant mylks. I would use West Soy unfortified unsweetened soy or Trader Joe’s soymilk because it has no fillers and full fat. Or Trader Joe’s coconut milk in the can with no guar gum.

Any suggestions on how to add some more protein to this? I was thinking firm tofu

I just made this. Love it! Because I live in a smaller community, I had to make a few minor adjustments (i.e. fresh lemongrass & fresh grated lemon zest). This is on my repeat list.

I just tried this and it was delicious! I only used teaspoons of spice not tablespoons…

Instead of using plant milk, I put in a couple scoops of plain/original hummus. (About 1/2 cup). It lightened up the color of the soup and tasted sooooooooo good! Highly recommend!

I also used Lomein noodles in place of the rice noodles and squeezed in some lemon juice. It was amazing! Totally making this again soon.

This was a delicious recipe. I loved all of the different veggies in this soup. I would prep as many of the vegetables as you can beforehand as well as the Thai Spice Blend. This will save you some time when cooking the entire soup. The best part is that the leftovers tasted even better the next day!

I didn’t have dried lemongrass or lemon rind when I was making the spice blend so I added fresh lemongrass to the soup while cooking it. It turned out really well. It took me way longer than 25 minutes prep time though. Haha.

Is the “basil” in the recipe Thai basil? It is not specified.

So good! I made it the second time with vegetables on hand and it was just as good; subbed onions for scallions, used up the baby bok choy I had on hand and used a sweet pepper instead of snow peas. The lime is not negotiable, adds a lot! I had banh pho rice noodles because that’s what I had and it was a little better with the udon noodles, they are firmer and don’t get mushy. Thank you for a great meal option!

This is so easy and phenomenal. We improvised on the veggies and used soba noodles because we had them. Amazing. A new favorite staple.

This was excellent. The flavors are fresh and bright and the veggies turn out crisp-tender and delicious. I served with some cilantro and chopped peanuts to finish it off. Super satisfying!
