      Very nice flavor. I left a little lemongrass in the soup and added green onions as well.

      This is delicous! I used fresh shimeji mushrooms and a few snow peas for extra color. I could not find roasted chili paste at the store, so used the chili garlic paste that they had. Also used homemade chicken stock. The combination of lime juice and fish sauce is wonderful. I didn't use any meat or fish this time, but I'm sure some chicken or shrimp would also be a good addition. Thank you very much for sharing this recipe with us. It is a great improvement over the tom yum cubes.
