Not the traditional Tom Yum, but little of what I ever throw together ever is. Thicker with way more vegetables and chunkies inside. I added a small square of Diamond Brand noodles (definitely not on any recipe I’ve ever seen). Unfortunately, I was missing cilantro, kaffir leaves, and lemongrass.

Perhaps a little too spicy for La Petite Fille ™, but I think Teener will like it. Let’s see if she actually reads this and asks for it.
