Spicy Pickled Vegetables

Recipe by Yogi8

The owner/chef of the Chinese restaurant where I work gave me this recipe. I tried it with carrots and onions. It's a great snack that's low fat & calories, not to mention delicious! Even my husband, who is not a big vegie fan ate these! Feel free to adjust measurements. I just threw it together, so these measurement are guesses. Oh, yeah... the Tom Yam cubes can be found at any oriental market. The main ingredients in them are salt, chilli powder, sugar, citrus leaf, lemon grass, lemon juice. I don't know of any substitutions. This broth is spicy with a bit of a lemony flavor.
