My Goals and Discoveries
Substantial enough for dinner
Generous amounts of shrimp and rice noodles plus cherry tomatoes and oyster mushrooms make this soup a light yet satisfying meal.
Relatively quick execution
Smashing the aromatics for the broth extracts all the flavor necessary to build a bright soup in just 15 minutes of simmering.
The classic Thai flavor profile of hot, sour, salty, and sweet is achieved through a careful balance of lemongrass, galangal, makrut lime leaves, Thai chiles, fish sauce, sugar, and lime juice.
