This Thai soup is one of the easiest soups I have ever made and full of so much flavor. It’s made easy by minced lemongrass from a tube and ginger from a jar. You can really take a short cut by using a rotisserie chicken from the market. EASY!!!
Tom Kha Gai means soup ginger chicken in Thai and is a popular soup in the U.S. There is a Lao version that substitutes dill for cilantro (coriander leaves). Both are really good. Did I mention this is super easy? Beginner cooks should try this one, you will learn some new ingredients such as fish sauce and lemongrass.
Flavored with the usual Thai ingredients of lemongrass, ginger, fish sauce and lime juice but with an Autumn bonus, pumpkin! In fact this is basically a Tom Kha Gai soup with pumpkin. I have 15 pumpkins from my one vine this year and I need to use them.
Speaking of pumpkins, have you ever roasted one? It’s easy and pumpkin is actually really good for you, high in beta carotene.
