Vegan Tom Yum Soup

Updated: Jun 7, 2018

Vegan Tom Yum

Straight from Gourmandelle | Serves: 4| Time: ~25 min


3 cups vegetable broth

5 kaffir lime leaves

3 slices unpeeled ginger (I used ginger powder)

3 slices lemongrass, about 2 inches long

3 #Thai chile peppers, crushed in a mortar and pestle, seeds removed

1 cup button mushrooms, sliced

2 Tbsp light soy sauce (I used aminos)

2 Tbsp coconut oil

3 tsp vegan fish sauce

⅓ can #CoconutMilk

1 lime, juiced

1 tomato, diced

½ onion, diced

½ cup tofu, cubed (I skipped)

chopped green onions


In a mortar and pestle, add lemongrass, peppers, and ginger. Crush them so they will release their flavors.

Heat a saucepan over medium heat. Add the crushed spices above and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add the oil and fry for one more minute. Pour in the vegetable broth and bring it to a boil.

Once boiling, add the lime leaves, mushrooms, vegan fish sauce, light soy sauce, lime juice, tomato, onions, coconut milk, and tofu (I skipped tofu).

Boil for 10 minutes.

Garnish with chopped green onions.
