What is Vegetarian Tom Yum sauce made of?

This delicious Vegetarian Tom Yum Soup is a traditional Thai dish, which is usually made with shrimp or chicken stock and other non-vegetarian ingredients. For more nutrition and flavor, you can add other vegetables to your soup; chop up a few broccoli crowns and toss them in the soup a few minutes before it is ready.

What Can I Substitute For Tom Yum Paste?

It’s quite difficult to find a suitable substitute for Tom Yum Paste, but red Thai curry paste would be the closest alternative. It may be necessary to add a few squeezes of lime juice and a pinch of sugar. This will help balance the hot, spicy, sweet, and sour flavors if you are using curry paste.
