Delish! I made this for our evening meal and we loved it. I doubled the recipe. I didn't have shallots so used regular onion and lime instead of lemon juice. I didn't have any spinach on had but did have some bok choy so chopped it up and added that. I will ad Udon noodles to this. The flavors were really good in this soup. I will make it again, thanks for the great post.
Really nice. A good basic soup recipe for asian dishes. It had a really nice coconut vs. tarty/sour taste going on mixed with a subtle chilli flavour coming through. I just cooked this for use on rice and then served it up with chicken Easy, quick, and delicious.
