Vegetarian Tom Yum Soup

Vegetarian Tom Yum Soup

The Vegetarian Tom Yum Soup is a vegan version of the popular Tom Yum Thai Soup. Tom Yum Soup is famous across the world because it is not only delicious but promotes good health by boosting the immune system and help to fight off cold and flu viruses.

The original Tom Yum Thai Soup doesn’t have coconut milk added to it. But vegans can add coconut milk as a thickener. With coconut milk added, the soup becomes Tom Kha.
