This yellow curried soup is a soothing comfort food when the weather turns cooler. Squash may be substituted if pumpkin is unavailable, or make a vegetarian/vegan version (see link within recipe). Whatever way you cook it, you'll have your guests asking for second (and third!) helpings of this deliciously warming, nutritious soup.
Soup makes a great dinner choice this time of year while all the fresh vegetables and herbs are still flooding the markets. Plus, this particular soup will help boost your immune system and fend off any early season cold/flu bugs (it's the lemongrass that does it!). Give it a try and indulge in a bowl of comfort!
Try my delicious version of Tom Yum Goong, which is basically Tom Yum soup with a little coconut milk added ("Tom Khaa"). The coconut milk gives it a little more thickness and flavor while still keeping it healthy. It's an easy recipe, quick to cook up, and the taste is restaurant quality. In addition, this soup helps boost your immune system, keeping you healthy and energized (it's the lemongrass and herbs that does it!).
This fabulous pumpkin soup is healthy, flavorful, and mood enhancing! Perfect for the fall or winter, this warming soup recipe features pumpkin or squash paired with shrimp and/or chunks of fish (any type of white fish fillets will work), plus some healthy greens. Instead of cream, this Thai soup calls for coconut milk, which, aside from being lower in calories and fat than cream, also pairs beautifully with the taste of the pumpkin or squash, making for a delicious soup that is also extremely healthy. ENJOY!
When the fall corn floods your local market, why not do something deliciously new with it? This scrumptious recipe for corn fritters is a real treat, and it's also vegetarian (plus gluten free!) - made with corn, tofu, and a variety of vegetables. The corn fritter batter takes only minutes to stir together, then just drop spoonfuls into hot oil and fry for a few minutes. An easy treat that is terrific as an appetizer, snack, or finger food for a party. For a dip, I like them with Thai Sweet Chili Sauce, which now seems to be available in most grocery stores - look for it in the Asian section. Enjoy!
This Thai Lemon Chicken recipe turns out beautifully golden, tender, and full of flavor. Both lemon and lemongrass are used to create a delicious garlic inflused lemon sauce. This is my #1 dish to serve when expecting company, as it is easy to make, can be put together ahead of time, and is very beautiful to serve.
This curry is cooked entirely from scratch, yet is very easy to make. And with the inclusion of sweet potato or yam as well as pumpkin, this dish is just perfect for harvest time. I've been told that even kids love it. Give it a try!
This dish offers the bright colors of autumn - orange, yellow, and red - together in a curry infused with citrus accents. You'll love the unique taste of this dish, as well as its healthy combination of vegetables, including pumpkin (or squash), yam/sweet potato, carrots, yellow bell pepper, and cherry tomatoes. Add chick peas as a protein source, then finish the dish with a sprinkling of pumpkin seeds and nasturtium flowers for a gourmet Thai treat that's as beautiful as it is delicious!
