A local Chinese restaurant makes the best tom yum vegetable soup I've ever tasted. I'd like to make it at home, but I don't have the recipe.
The soup is unlike any other tom yum soup I've ever tasted. I've posted a photograph here
. It's absolutely delicious.
Here's what I know or can deduce:
It's slightly sweet, slightly sour, and has a mild flavor (not spicy).
It's not orange or oily, like a lot of tom yum soups.
It's made with vegetable broth, not chicken broth (I asked).
It does not contain coconut milk.
It has bean sprouts, carrot shreds, and some other kind of unidentified vegetables that are slightly crunchy and are in the form of long sticks / shreds.
I think it has basil in it.
I'm pretty sure it has no onions or garlic, though I wouldn't swear to it.
I'd love to be able to make this at home, but a cursory Google search didn't come up with much. (Maybe it's not really
tom yum soup?)
