Thai Tom Yum Vegetable Soup

Thai soups are plentiful in their many variations and flavors. The base of this vegetarian soup recipe, known as Tom Yum, is lemongrass, galangal root, lime juice and kaffir lime leaves, plus tomato and spices. I simply used whatever veggies I had at home--- bok choy, broccoli, tomato, orange and red sweet peppers, zucchini--- and I just could not resist adding coconut milk. I tend to shop at Asian supermarkets as I love the selection of vegetables.
