|Thai Coconut chicken soup|
Hey you two melted?? Here is a great hot weather recipe....HOT SOUP! And if you think I am kidding, I'm not...it really cools you down, which is why so many really spicy hot recipes come from the tropics.
Put all the chopped peppers, garlic, onion, and ginger into a good sized pot, that has been heated with the oil, and simmer for a few minuits, add the chicken stock and the coconut milk, and bring to just below the boil...do NOT let it boil, just simmer for about ten minuits then add the tofu, cut into about one inch cubes, add the fish soy (nam pla) and the sugar and taste...probably add more salt, and if you want it really hot add a little red chile paste...garnish with cilantro chopped into it just before serving...this is fast, hot, and tastes terrific..I put this recipe together from a couple of others in two different Thai books, one of them called for chicken thighs chopped into it, which could also be done..hope you enjoy it as much as we do...Cheers, Doug in BC
