| Asian Soups

Now it’s time for things to get fun. Part 1 and Part 2 in this 6-part fresh tomato soup series were fairly straightforward. Delicious and comforting for sure, but not entirely unfamiliar. Because let’s face it, tomato soup isn’t exactly the most exotic soup in the world. Well that changes starting today with part 3 for a […]

| Asian Soups

Surely, somewhere in tropical Thailand someone makes a Thai watermelon soup recipe similar to this one (though I never encountered it in my travels in Thailand). The combination of a steamy hot summer day with Thai seasonings, mint and watermelon makes for a wonderfully cooling and intensely flavorful soup. Planning an outdoor backyard party in summer? […]

Tom Saap (Thai Pork Ribs Hot and Sour Soup)

| Asian Soups

Tom Saap is a simple broth-based Thai soup that really showcases the fragrant depths that fresh lemongrass, galangal and kaffir lime leaves can add to soups.  It was one of the few recipes in my book, The Thai Soup Secret, that I nailed on my first attempt during the recipe testing phase.

Khao tom gai, a very simple Thai chicken and rice soup, is not that different than a typical chicken soup your grandmother would make. In fact, I’d go as far to say that your grandparents might actually like this recipe! That is if you could get them to try it. I don’t know about you […]

How to Make Gaeng Om (Thai Herbal Curry Soup)

| Asian Soups

Gaeng om, an herbal curry soup from northeastern Thailand, is not your typical Thai curry. It’s not fiery hot. It’s not rich and heavy. And it’s not sweet. Nor is it made with the red and green Thai curry pastes that require lots of ingredients and a good hour spent pounding everything into a paste in a mortar […]

A Thai coconut carrot soup may not be a staple in your diet but it’s probably similar to other types of creamy vegetable soups you’ve had throughout your life.

Thai Vegetable Soup (Gaeng Jued)

One of the myths of Thai cuisine is that it’s all super hot and spicy. Nothing could be further from the truth. A great example is a Thai vegetable soup, a super simple recipe that’s frequently given to those that are plagued with some form of digestive complaint.  Thai vegetable soup is known as gaeng jued in Thailand […]

Thai Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe

| Asian Soups

You might think that a Thai chicken noodle soup is like many Thai soups – rich, intensely flavored with a curry paste and of course, super spicy. Not so! I promise you there’s more to Thai soups than what you’ll find in western Thai restaurants. For example, this Thai chicken noodle soup is actually not that […]

Thai Beef Noodle Soup Recipe

| Asian Soups

This Thai beef noodle soup recipe is one of my absolute favorite Thai soups. It’s also pretty easy to make at home though I have to admit there’s nothing quite like getting it in Thailand itself where street vendors peddle their tasty soups from push carts which are a little bit like the hot dog […]
