Pearl’s Famous Tom Kah Coconut Soup Recipe

Tom Kah Coconut Soup

Tom Kah Coconut Soup

This rich tom kah coconut milk soup has been a long-standing favorite of Thai Spices’ patrons for years. It gets its unique rich flavor from quintessential Thai ingredients such as lemon grass, galangal root and kaffir lime leaf. It’s a quick and easy soup to make that’s surprisingly satisfying and delicious.

A Healthier Take on Tom Kah Coconut Soup

This healthy version of a traditional Thai dish is prepared using macrobiotic principles. The vegetables are cooked lightly in water instead of oil and balanced herbs are used. This soup can be made vegan, if you prefer it, by using Bragg’s Liquid Amino as your stock base instead of traditional fish sauce.

Basic Kale Chips Recipe

  • 1 bunch kale – wash, remove stems, and tear into 3 to 4 inch pieces.
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Pinch of sea salt

Heat oven to 375 degrees.  Mix vinegar and oil, pour over kale and toss to coat.  Sprinkle in the nutritional yeast and salt.  Toss again until kale is evenly coated.  Spread onto a baking sheet, and bake for approximately 15 minutes or until crispy and brown around the edges. Enjoy by themselves, or try crumbling them up over baked potatoes, pasta dishes, or salads.

Alternately you can use a dehydrator to cure your kale chips, about 110 degrees is a good temperature and you would just increase the time to about 3 to 4 hours.

I hope you enjoy it as much as my customers have enjoyed it.

This healthy Asian kale salad tastes especially best when it is made 1 hour prior to serving if you have the time, however can be served anytime.

I always recommend organic when possible, this not only tastes superior but you can count on it having little or no bad elements like pesticides.

One thing for sure is that Kale salads are one of the healthiest choices for your diet and will keep you feeling and looking youthful and alive.

    negative review  7/11/20 - we arrived and the greeter/to go order giver was NOT wearing his mask over his mouth and nose. We were seated just a couple feet from another table. It took 8-10 minutes until our waitress even came to our table. We were just getting ready to leave at this point. It took another 5 minutes to get our water and drinks. I ordered the Pad Thai with Shrimp (no green onions). It was cold around the edges and hot in the middle and had onions. Of the 4 meals orders, 2 people didn't eat much. One described her meal as slimey. Also, buried in the menu near the back is a 18% gratuity for parties of FOUR (4) or more. I complained about this but the owner wouldn't even talk about it. This is the worst Thai place that I've ever eaten. It doesn't represent the many restaurants in Sedona.
