A few months ago, I made a Thai chicken soup for the first time.
The ingredients were simple.
I had some vegetable soup on hand, and I had a jar of curry paste.
The first thing I did was boil some water and add a splash of ginger and garlic paste.
Then I added some soy sauce, a few slices of ginger, and a splash more of coconut milk.
Then the soup was ready to go.
I made the soup ahead of time so I had all the ingredients ready for a week or two before I got to cooking.
And then it was a bit of a nightmare to make, but when you get it right it’s delicious.
So this week I decided to take things a bit further.
I wanted to make my Thai chicken sauce in a way that I could add whatever ingredients I needed to make it Thai.
This way, I wouldn’t have to worry about making sure I had the right spices and herbs, and also to have the right flavor profile.
The result is a Thai Chicken Soup that’s creamy and flavorful, yet has a Thai flavor that doesn’t overpower it.
