Tom Yum Inspired Soup

This is a recipe I taught during my workshop in Phuket, Thailand, to a packed room full of locals. My raw vegan version of their traditional Thai soup.

Tom Yum Inspired Soup
(serves 4)


  • 1/4 cup shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup straw mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons green chili peppers, chopped, about 3 Thai or 1 serrano pepper
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1 Tablespoon Soy Sauce
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil


  • 2 cups coconut meat
  • 1 teaspoon garlic
  • 5 medium Kaffir lime leaves
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon grass, chopped, lower stalks only
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 to 4 cups filtered water, as needed


  • 2 tablespoons cilantro leaves, chopped

Marinate toppings by placing all ingredients into a bowl. Set aside for 10 minutes or more.

Into your blender, place soup base ingredients with 1 cup water. Blend smooth. Add remaining water,  blend to mix well.

To serve, scoop soup base into 4 bowls. Top with marinated vegetables,  and garnish with cilantro leaves.

    Where in Phuket did you teach this workshop? I lived there for three months and am familiar with some of the local detox/”raw-interested” spots. Wasn’t it virtually impossible to leave? I can’t wait to get back, ALMOST opened a juice bar there . . . .
    Great recipe! Thank you!
