Thai Soup recipe
Although this might look or sound like a complicated recipe, I assure you it is not! It actually comes together in less than 30 minutes – making it perfect for a quick dinner idea any night of the week!
I got this recipe from my friend, Michelle, from A Dish of Daily Life. She recently had surgery, and a few of her blogging friends have been posting her recipes and sharing her stuff on our social media to keep her blog going while she recovers! She shares mostly healthy recipes with a few indulgences! I had the opportunity to meet Michelle last year in Las Vegas and again in Austin. She is such a fun person, and I love her to pieces!
I’ve wanted to make this recipe for a while. I finally made it back in December, but because of life, I haven’t had the chance to post it until now! We’ve made it 3 or 4 times since, and it’s always a hit with my family – especially with my 15-year-old, Isaac! As a matter of fact, we have a batch of the paste in the refrigerator right now, so we can make another pot of this soup tomorrow! (I need the leftover chicken from tonight for the soup, too!)
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do! ?
