Cut a fresh tomato in it and YUM!

  1. bon appetit 🙂

  2. Yeah, yeah, yeah… I love Thai food of any kind.. looks yummy.  

  3. Enjoy your lunch!I love coconut. I have so many in the garden they are like huge (and dangerous) bunches of grapes. I have to find someone to climb up and cut them down. Unless they are jelly coconuts I don’t do anything with them though, too much trouble. I make a veg. version of tom ka which is nice, but hot, but from tinned coconut cream.

  4. @SavonDuJour – so of course, I had to go look up Jelly Coconut.  Everything I find says it’s something you make?Really, I’m sure you’re getting tired of me asking, but could you tell me how you make your soup?  I’ve tried a couple of different recipes and dont’ like any of them.

  5. Not getting tired at all. Jelly coconut.Its hard to give you a recipe for tom kha, because it changes so much, but essentially its a mixture of fried (has to be in olive oil) onons, couple of red peppers (sweet), lot of garlic, cumin, coriander, hot sauce, must be one with a flavour like Matouk’s or most West Indian ones, not that stuff you put in bloody Mary’s that adds heat but not flavour. (Its from Trinidad but still…).  Also either lime leaves or lime juice (a lot, about 3 limes worth, the soup is supposed to be hot and sou. In Thailand its VERY hot and sour), about 2-3 cups of diced tomatoes, 1/2 to 1 can of coconut milk (you can use the lite), about a cup or cup and a half of veg stock -and …. 1/2-1 cup of peanut butter. You can miss this out but you would need something to give it body. Try everything else and then see if you want to add it. I love it. Digressing – one of my favourite flavour combinations is the coconut rice and satay sauce (which is essentially peanut butter) you get with chicken or beef satay.   (I’m not a vegetarian, I just prefer veg. food mostly).Essentially saute everything that can be sauteed up, then put everything together, bring to the boil, turn down the heat and simmer it for a while, 50 mins or an hour. Blend it up, adding more or less broth, coconut milk and peanut butter. Serve it with cilantro leaves.  

  6. @SavonDuJour – Oh, I think this will work.  Every recipe I have tried is to thick.  I’ll give this one a shot next weekend.  Thanks!

  7. @tracy – Forgot to say, you have to blend it before you bring it to the boil. Fresh lime is noticeably better than bottled juice. It is supposed to be quite thin.

  8. that sounds so good! I never would’ve thought to put a tomato in my soup. good thinkin’!
