Shrimp Tom Kha With Broccoli Noodles

Galangal is a common ingredient in Thai food that’s similar in look to ginger but extra fiery in taste. If you can’t find it or prefer your tom kha with less heat, ginger will work just fine.

  1. Combine the broth, ginger, and lime zest in a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.
  2. Add the coconut milk, broccoli florets, broccoli noodles, lemongrass, and mushrooms and return the heat to medium. Cook for 5 minutes or until the mushrooms are softened. Add the shrimp and cook until pink, opaque, and completely cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in the fish sauce and lime juice. Remove the pan from the heat, discard the lemongrass, and divide the soup among four bowls. Garnish with the red chile slices and cilantro.
