    KristinV's Note:

    Tom Yum, one of the most famous Asian soups, is the pride of Thailand. It is made with mushrooms - shiitake and button work well. You may be able to find a decent Tom Yum soup paste at the store, if not I have one saved in my public recipes

      Excellent recipe and directions. Made it exactly as described (I have several Asian groceries nearby, so ingredients weren't a problem) and not only did I love it, but my GF (soon to be DW), a very picky eater not particularly fond of most Asian cuisine, loved it also .... to the point of asking me to make it again.

      Wow, this soup packs a wonderful flavour punch! It suits my taste buds perfectly -- spice-wise not overly hot, but plenty sour. I pan-fried the tofu to keep down the fat content, and used only 4 shiitake mushrooms as mine were huge. Be sure to cover your stock when it's boiling so you don't lose too much liquid. Now I'm off to the neighbour's to raid their kaffir lime tree again. Don't tell them it's me!
