Vegetarian Tom Yum Soup

Veggie Tom Yum Soup

I’m a little obsessed with the spicy fragrant flavour of Tom Yum Soup and this recipe, which is vegan friendly & gluten free, really hits the mark with me. This recipe has fantastic immune boosting properties and is a great way to include veggies and plant based protein into your diet. The soup serves four and makes a great lunch or you have the option of adding some rice noodles to it if you’re after something a little more substantial. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
