A spicy chicken and vegetable soup balancing many flavors, including complex citrus and more earthy tastes contrasted by spicy components. This is a very aromatic meal, and is especially good for opening up the sinuses of cold sufferers. This is loosely based on a few varied Thai soup recipes, and from my own tastes and desire to try new things. Since it is elementarily based from Thai recipes I decided to name it Phet gai soup: “Phet” means “spicy hot,” and “Gai” means chicken in Thai.
Ready in: 1 hour 5 mins
- 2 turnips
- Fresh cilantro (Chinese coriander) to your taste – I use half to most of a bunch.
- 2 red/green/orange peppers (orange suggested)
- Fresh garlic cloves, to your taste – I use 2 entire garlic cloves
- 2 tablespoons lime juice
- 1 tablespoon ground mustard (for best, spicy results use english ground mustard like colmans)
- 6 radishes
- 1 horseradish root or wasabi
- 2 (16 ounce) cans chicken broth
- 2 pounds cooked chicken (boneless skinless tenderloins seem to work best)
- 2 large onions (Vidalia is best), chopped
- 4 chili peppers (might I suggest Suerno, or Anaheim), chopped
- 6 stalks lemongrass
- 1 ginger root, grated
- 1 (16 ounce) bag small shell kosher noodles
Prep: 20 mins | Cook: 45 mins
1. In a blender, blend turnips, cilantro, bell peppers, garlic, lime juice, mustard, radishes, and horseradish with 1/2 cup of the chicken broth (to help it all liquify).
2. Place mixture in a large pot and add remaining chicken broth, cooked chicken, onions, and chili peppers. Bring pot to a simmer over medium-low heat.
3. Add 6 whole lemongrass stalks. DO NOT MINCE OR OTHERWISE CHOP LEMONGRASS, unless you like spindly hair-like things in your food, in which case go ahead. Add ginger.
4. Simmer for 30 minutes, then remove lemongrass stalks and set aside (to be added to each bowl of soup as garnish).
5. Bring pot to boil again, then add your noodles. When noodles are finished, about 8 minutes, turn off heat and allow to cool for a few minutes.
6. It’s ready to serve, but be warned its spicy.
