Thai-Style Spicy-and-Sour Chicken Soup. Perfumed with lemongrass and lime leaves and sparked with chilies, it's quick to make and a great starter for almost any meal. It also just might be one of the best-tasting cold cures around.

This is both the easiest soup to make and the most delicious soup in the world! I subbed some ingredients (fresh mushrooms, water for stock, frozen shrimp for chicken) and added frozen sliced galangal. I followed the instructions exactly though. It came out phenomenal! Thanks!
