Do you like spicy food? Then you should cook up a pot of this Thai soup. It has a deliciously unusual flavor with a bite!
If you want more of a bite, then leave the seeds in when you cut up your jalapeno peppers. Much of the heat of a hot pepper is in the seeds, so leaving them in or removing them is an excellent way of controlling just how hot you want a dish. If it isn’t hot enough for you even with the seeds in, then you can use habanero peppers, but take my advice and be careful; habanero peppers are dangerously hot, so wear gloves when slicing and seeding them.
2 tablespoons olive oil 1 cup green onions, thinly sliced 4 garlic cloves, minced 1 tablespoon ginger root, peeled and minced 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, minced 1 cup carrots, chopped fine 1 cup fresh mushrooms, chopped 1 jalapeno peppers, thinly sliced and seeded 1/3 cup green bell pepper, julienned 1 pound chicken, cubed 4 cups chicken broth 1 14 oz can of coconut milk 1 tablespoon soy sauce 1 cup sugar snap peas, sliced long ways 1 lime, juiced and half the peel zested salt and pepper to taste
Lightly salt and pepper the chicken cubes and set aside Saute green onions, garlic, cilantro and ginger in olive oil until soft Mix in carrots, peppers and mushrooms and saute all for 3 minutes Pour in chicken broth, add soy sauce, and then slowly add coconut milk Bring to a boil then then lower heat to medium Add chicken cubes and cook on medium heat about 15 or 20 minutes until cooked through Toss in peas, lime zest and juice and heat on medium for 5 minutes Serve hot immediately with wheat crackers, pita chips, or torn bread pieces
If you want to make this soup into your dinner entree, simply serve it over noodles or rice. It is a delicious addition to your recipes to make regularly, because once you have it, you will want to make it again and again!
