Tom yum is a Southeast Asian soup popular in Laos and Thailand. There are many different regional variations, but tom yum gets its fragrant base note from a combination of traditional herbs (like lemongrass, galangal and makrut lime leaves) and chiles. The result is a delicious, slightly hot soup. In our version, we’re using both tom yum paste and fresh herbs to infuse the broth. Coconut powder (dried coconut milk) gives the soup a rich finish, highlighting the earthy mushrooms, cabbage and bean sprouts. (The fact that “yum” means “tasty” in English seems to be a happy coincidence.)

1 Prepare the ingredients:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut the tofu in into bite-sized cubes. Trim off and discard the bottoms of the mushrooms; cut the mushrooms into bite-sized pieces. Trim off and discard the roots of the scallions; thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and green tops. Peel and mince the garlic and ginger. Cut off and discard the ends of the lemongrass stalk; peel away the fibrous outer layers until you reach the white, pliable core. Thinly slice the core. Remove and discard the core of the cabbage; cut the leaves into bite-sized pieces. In a medium bowl, whisk together the coconut powder and ½ cup of warm water. Using a peeler, remove the green rind of the lime, avoiding the white pith. Mince the rind to get 2 teaspoons of zest. Quarter the lime.
