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.

Great recipe! I only used 1 tablespoon of the fish sauce, as I find it to be a very strong flavor. Otherwise I was so impressed at how much this soup tasted exactly like that of my favorite Thai restaurant!

Very easy and delicious! I couldn't find actual stalks of Lemongrass, so I improvised by steeping Lemongrass (the kind that comes in a tube in the produce section) in some cheesecloth with lime zest (to substitute for the lime leaves). The tomato and cilantro garnish adds a delicious pop of flavor too. Will definitely make this again.
