Thai Mushroom Soup recipe and picture by Chava Eichner www.flavourphotos.com
Garnishing with bail leaves and red chilli really makes the presentation of this soup.
1. Gently heat the oil in a large saucepan. Sauté the spring onions together with finely chopped lemongrass and crushed garlic until softened but not browned.
2. Add the chopped chilli and turmeric and stir for a minute, then pour in the coconut milk and vegetable stock. Stir in the sliced mushrooms and let the soup simmer for 20 minutes.
3. Slice the mangetouts diagonally into very thin slices. Add them to the soup with the basil leaves and simmer for a further 2-3 minutes. Check the seasoning and add a little salt if necessary.
Tip: If you don’t serve the soup straight away, prepare the mangetouts and only add them at the last minute. They should still retain a little crunch.
