Hot and Sour Tumeric Chicken Soup Thursday, August 03, 2017, 05:46 PM


I made Hot and Sour Tumeric Chicken Soup1 from Simple Thai Food. I actually followed the recipe pretty closely except I used Better Than Boullon for the stock and, even though they say it is not the same, I used ginger for the galengal. I also used the powdered tumeric and I used chicken breasts. Oh, and we sliced the (fresh from the garden) peppers to increase the heat.

Despite following the recipe, we didn't love it. The tumeric flavor was just too overpowering. You could really taste the kaffir lime and the lemongrass though. It kind of reminded me of Tom Yum but not as good, or as sweet. Meredith really didn’t like it and didn't even end up eating hers.

So, it was a fun and new experiment, but it is not going to be into our normal rotation.

ALso, I do not think I was supposed to strain it but eating around the lemongrass and ginger was a bit odd.
