This mildly spicy soup is one of our family favorites. The key to this Thai-inspired dish is the green curry paste — don’t use too much, or it will literally knock your socks off!
Thai soups are delicious and flavorful, but often super spicy. One of my all-time favorites is Tom Kha Gai — a spicy Thai soup with a coconut milk broth. I’ll never forgot the one I tried at the restaurant at the Idyllic Concept Resort in Koh Lipe, Thailand. It literally took my breath away.
My lips were on fire and I gasped for breath after my first spoonful. I recovered to normal breathing with the help of a lemon slice. Yes, a lemon slice! It’s an effective neutralizer of the capsaicin compound, the source of the burning sensation. Apparently milk also works? I haven’t tried milk, but both are good tips to keep in mind the next time you’ve eaten something spicier than you intended.
I promise that this super yummy vegan Thai broccoli, spinach and coconut soup will not stop your breathing or burn your lips!…
