You thought we we’re gonna leave Thailand so soon? Think again dudes. Today we have a special Vegan version of our famous Spicy Thai Coconut Soup that’s even better than the original. As a fellow meatarian I do not miss meat at all in this fantastic dish. Let’s make it!

We think the Thai name is Tom Khing Teahu (ต้มขิงที่หู) which translates to Tofu Ginger Soup… Thai friends, please help! :D

Hot Tip
Squeeze the excess water out of the tofu before cutting it up!
