A super simple Thai soup that tantalizes the palate. This is a cookbook I use frequently. I may have cooked about 60% of all the recipes in this book. Most are simple, but the flavors and authenticity of each dish is evident. It is also rare to find a completely vegetarian Thai cookbook, most vegetarian books call for fish sauce, or shrimp paste. This book is truly vegetarian, and most recipes are also vegan. For those wanting to start cooking vegetarian Thai food, this is an excellent starter book.
