coconut ginger noodle soup

I love coconut soup, especially tom kha from Thai restaurants. However, every time I’d get it, sick city. Invariably these soups are made with the fish sauce traditional recipes call for. Duh.

Besides being vegan, she addresses a lot of other dietary concerns in her recipes including gluten-free, paleo, etc. She […]
