Ingredients

Preparation

Heat a wok and add 3 tablespoons of the oil; fry tofu until all sides have a golden crust. Remove tofu and set aside. In the same wok with remaining 2 tablespoons oil, sauté carrot, onion and mushrooms for 3 to 5 minutes until translucent and fragrant. Place the vegetable mixture in a large pot with water and bring to a boil.

When water comes to a boil, stir in chile peppers, lemongrass, ginger, lime leaves or peel and shallots. Let boil for 5 minutes, than add zucchini, corn and jalapeño and cook for 2 minutes. Stir in salt, coconut milk and lime juice.

To serve the soup, divide equally among 6 soup bowls, add tofu and garnish with cilantro and 1 teaspoon of coconut cream.

This soup is yummy

Been a vegetarian for a long time and am grateful I found a recipe for my favorite Thai soup. I followed the recipe, unusual for me, and the soup is excellent. I'm making it again with some modifications.
