Default Tom Kha Gai- Fragrant Thai Chicken Soup

5.00 slices (1" dia), Ginger root - Raw
4.00 g, Kaffir Lime Leaves
2.00 cup(s), Low Sodium Chicken Broth
0.35 lb(s), All Natural Premium Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
50.00 g(s), Mushrooms - Raw
1.00 Tbsp, Fish Sauce
1-2 thai/ serrano peppers (optional)
1 tsp splenda
2.00 tbsp(s), Lemongrass stalks - Raw, chopped
0.25 cup, Coriander (cilantro) leaves - Raw (Cilantro, raw, Chinese parsley, raw)
Juice of 1 lime
150.00 ml(s), Coconut Milk

Just boil all the ingredients together until the chicken cooks! It smells divine. Encountered it for the first time on a trip to Thailand. For a more substantial meal, you may add shirataki noodles. If you don't want to munch on the ginger and lemongrass, you can make boil all the ingredients without the chicken and mushroom first, strain the soup and then cook the chicken in the fragrant broth.

O man this sounds fantastic. Im a big Thai food fan so I will give this a go in a week or so.

Yield of carbs are only 6g per person (minus another 2 for fibre=4grams) so that just about works out for me.

Thanks for posting it up.
