This is very good stew even though I did not have all the ingredients and skipped items rather than subbed items in. I skipped the thai chilies (but added one jalapeno), the tom yum paste, lemongrass and the kaffir lime leaves. I used regular basil instead of the Thai basil. Delicious soup which we had with some rolls, though it would probably be really good over noodles or rice. The rest I am having for lunch tomorrow! Thanks for sharing!
