Souper Easy Tom Yum Soup


This recipe comes right off the label of my jar of Tom Yum paste. Sometimes I just want something good and I want it fast. How fast? Try about 5 minutes.

Tom Yum Soup

2 cups water

3 tablespoons vegetarian Tom Yum paste (most Asian markets carry this)

1-1 1/2 cups fresh chopped vegetables of your choice (I choose broccoli every time)

Extras (optional)

Frozen vegetable dumpling

Leftover grilled tofu, cubed


Bring water to boil in a medium saucepan. Add vegetables and simmer covered about 5 minutes, until tender. Add any extras and stir to heat thoroughly.


Add Tom Yum paste and stir until completely dissolved and soup is heated through.


I just adore the flavor of Tom Yum–the blend of salty, spicy and sour combined with the aromatic lemongrass is a real go-to comfort food for me. I hope you try this recipe and enjoy it often.
