Tom Kha Soup
1 carton of low sodium chicken broth
1 can of coconut milk
1/2 bag of shrimp or 2 boneless skinless chicken breast raw/chopped into nice size chunks
1Tbl of red curry paste
1Tbl of red chile sauce-more if you like it hotter
1/4 c of fish sauce
2Tbl oil
1 small chopped onion
2-3 cloves of garlic chopped
2 lemon grass stalks(white part only)-get this in Asian store
6 slices of fresh ginger-peeled
Chopped fresh basil
1 c of sliced mushrooms

In a soup pan heat oil and then add ginger and lemon grass sauté for 2 minutes then add onion and garlic and sauté another 2 minutes
Add broth,coconut milk,then the rest of the ingredients stirring after each item, bring to boil and turn down heat and simmer till meat is cook,,serve and enjoy.

P.S I forgot to say you don't eat the lemon grass, really tough and if you like ginger you can eat it or take it out also ...

I'm drooling... HAHA

Think I'm going to have to give this a try. Not sure if I'll be able to find the lemon grass though... do you think that leaving it out will make much of a difference?

@Melissa if you can not find lemongrass then use the zest and juice of 1 lemon. Good luck
