Quickie Coconut Tomato Tom Yum Soup.

You all know how I love a soup.  But I have to be honest, some soups confound me.  I can make a mean chowder or stew, but when it comes to Asian soups I'm a little lost.  So I was thrilled when Pacific Natural Foods contacted me and asked if I would give their new Soup Starters line a try.  They have a Tom Yum Starter, a Pho Starter, and a Tortilla Soup Starter.

The Starters are so tasty you could drink them straight from the carton, but if you want to get a touch fancier, it's crazy easy.  Here's my simple twist on the traditional Tom Yum Soup.  Only takes a couple minutes and will make your friends think you slaved all day.  But who are we kidding, don't share with friends - enjoy it all for yourself!

Coconut Tomato Tom Yum Soup

Quickie Coconut Tomato Tom Yum Soup Ingredients:

  • 1 quart Tom Yum Soup Starter
  • 1 can coconut milk (14 ounces)
  • 1/2 can diced tomatoes, drained (14 ounce can)
  • 16 ounce package frozen stir fry or Japanese blend vegetables
  • 14 ounces prepared soba noodles or stir fry noodles
  • optional garnishes: lime, Thai basil, red pepper flakes, cilantro

Quickie Coconut Tomato Tom Yum Soup Directions:

  1. Combine soup starter, coconut milk, and tomatoes in a stock pot and simmer about 5 minutes.  Blend with an immersion blender until smooth. 
  2. Stir in vegetables and bring back to a simmer.
  3. Stir in noodles and cook until noodles are heated through.  Serve immediately.
  4. Enjoy!

  4. My favorite two soups (who can choose just one) - is turkey carcass soup and a fab lentil soup (both originally from Jane Brody cook books.) I would love to try these - I too so enjoy soups but have never been able to make good home-made Asian soups. SO looking for these in stores. Thanks for the opportunity!


  5. I manage a bookstore/cafe and during the winter months I make our soups from scratch every morning. Current faves (mine & customers') are split pea (crockpot) and tortellini w/meatball. I use Pacific Foods Tortilla Soup Starter for those mornings when I know I can't stand around and saute/dice/chop/cook. The broth is AWESOME and my customers love it! I add black beans, corn, diced tomatoes & rotisserie chicken. Top it with cheese & chips and you've got happy customers (not to mention staff & moi...!)

  6. Current fave is chicken rice noodle pho. : ) I also LOVE my mom's beef stew... oh, yum. Thanks, now I'm hungry lol!

  7. I think my favorite would be potato soup although I make and love many. Just made a pot of split pea from my Dutch friend's recipe which I have made for many years. I haven't tried these products so would like to.

  8. I love this soup and am so glad to find an easy way to make it!! Thanks for this!
