Vegetarian Delights: Spicy Thai Stir-Fry Soup

Spicy Thai Stir-Fry Soup

I love Thai Food, and especially Tom Kha and Tom Yum soup.  Our local Asian fusion restaurant has a bit of a different take on their soups, by using a tomato-based broth, so this was the inspiration for today's recipe.

The coconut milk is creamy, delicious and filling, so meat really isn't necessary in this recipe.  It would be really easy (and tasty) to throw some shrimp or chicken in if you like!

Most of today's ingredients came from my local Trader Joe's.  I love their organic Tomato and Roasted Red Pepper Soup.  It's a perfect, vegetarian-base with tons of color and flavor.

Of course, if you're looking for a lower calorie version, you can always use light coconut milk, or even a vegetable or chicken broth in place of the coconut milk. Some fresh lemongrass would be delightful in this also!
