great recipe! would mae again
it is amazing! We can't have noodles so I replaced the noodles with wild rice that I had already had in the fridge cooked... And I added some chicken. I am definitely going to make this again

Good maybe a little less lime next time
Sean 18 Feb
I only used 1-1/2 of the limes and that was wayyyy too much. Next time only one lime.

Loved the flavor and very creamy which is what I was aiming for.

Very tasty! Next time I'll cook the rice noodles separately as they absorbed all my broth.

Anazing!! Add lots of coconut milk for a creamier soup

The flavors are perfect. You can add your favorite vegetables decrease the stock and serve over rice or make as published as I did.

Delicious! We love Thai food and the noodles make it kid friendly. I like that it can also be vegetarian if need be, and it's still so full of flavor even without the chicken.

Used yellow curry to create a very tasty family pleasing dinner. Had to double the amount of curry because the coconut milk mellowed it out too much. I added red pepper at the end rather than sprouts and it was great!

Fabulous!!!! I added a bit more red curry paste and used grated lemongrass. I will definitely be making this again

Best Thai Soup recipe I've made yet! The only thing I added was red peppers and grape tomatoes halved. Thank you!

My four kids and my husband loved this soup! Just got added to our menu calendar 😋 thank you Chef Michael!

Loved it! will be on my regulars now. I liked the sourness of the lime, mixed with the cilantro and the sweetness of the coconut milk! Excellent! Everybody that loves thai needs to make this!

Pretty good. Halfed the recipe and then I had to add a little more chicken broth because I had too many rice noodles.
Emily M. 2 Jul 2016
I made this without the chicken, since i didn't have any. Otherwise i followed the recipe and it was really good. The ingredients say coconut milk, and then the instructions said coconut cream. I used the cream and it was creamy and yummy. Also at the grocery store i found rice sticks and not rice noodles but they are apparently the same thing. Would definitely make again.
