The recipe for this soup was provided by one of the first vegan restaurants in the US, Araya’s Place, specializing in Thai cuisine. Thanks to traditional ingredients such as kaffir lime leaves, lemongrass, galangal, chili pepper and lime juice, the taste of the soup remains as rich and wonderful, with tart-burning notes, and mushrooms and tofu make it hearty and nutritious. Vegan Tom Yam gets ready in minutes. Serve by sprinkling each serving with fresh cilantro and green onions.
