Colourful Thai Soup – Memories of Thailand

Colourful Spicy Thai Soup by Jo-Ann Blondin

Hello Taste of Thailand,

There is nothing better than having a food that reminds you of a great trip that you took.  When we went to Thailand our senses were on overload.  From the busy streets, colourful markets, calming temples and greenery we were delighted by all we saw.  Best of all was the food as it had so much flavour.

This recipe is designed to give you a gluten free, dairy free, sugar free version of the amazing food we enjoyed while we were there.  To make it 100% vegan, use gluten free Tamari instead of the fish sauce or look for an organic mushroom sauce.  Enjoy this colourful thai soup.

Although I have posted this recipe before, I though you might enjoy a shorter version.  This version also gives you the ability to print it out and add to your collection.  The previous version gives you a ton of step by step instructions and many images so you can follow along.  Click here for the original post.
