Who knew that Tom Yum Soup takes only 15 minutes to make? Yep, you heard it right, it takes as little as 15 minutes to make Tom Yum Soup, or in this case, Tom Yum Noodle soup, which is one of my favorite lunch dishes during week days.
Like any busy moms, I don’t have a lot of time during the day. And when it comes to lunch, I have a list of quick and easy, 15-minutes lunch recipes that I always resort to: cold soba noodles, soba noodles soup, various variations of fried rice, and this Tom Yum noodle soup.
Tom Yum Noodle Soup Recipe
1 roll packaged soba noodles/egg noodles (or instant noodles)
1 1/4 cups water
1 stalk lemongrass, white part only, pounded and bruised
5-6 kaffir lime leaves, bruised
4-5 slices fresh galangal
1/2 small tomato, cut into 3 to 4 wedges
6 medium-sized shrimp, shelled and deveined
6 canned straw mushrooms or fresh oyster mushrooms, cut into halves
1 1/2 tablespoons Nam Prik Pao (Thai roasted chili paste)
1/2 tablespoon fish sauce or to taste
3 dashes chili powder
1 1/2 tablespoons lime juice
Cilantro leaves, for garnishing
Prepare the soba/egg noodles according to package instructions. Usually it takes about 5 minutes or so to cook the soba noodles. Drain the noodles, rinse with cold water and set aside in a serving bowl.
At the same time, bring the 1 1/4 cups water to boil in another small pot. Add in all the aromatics, follow by the shrimp, mushrooms, and nam prik phao. Keep boiling until the shrimp is cooked through. Add the fish sauce and chili powder. Turn off the heat, add in the lime juice. Stir to combine well.
Pour the Tom Yum soup over the noodles and topped with some cilantro leaves. Serve immediately.
