    This was a little bland, but increased all the spices (garlic, tum yum paste) added about a tablespoon of red curry and used the full can of coconut milk. Also the recipe called for coriander at the end (wierd ), I used cilantro. The flavor of the soup intensified over time and was fabulous an hour later. Next time I will make ahead to accommodate before serving. Also added broccoli

    Delicious. I halved the recipe so ended up putting 1.5 tbsp Tom Yum paste, regrettably though it was not at all spicy. In hindsight I should have put the full 3 tbsp paste in 1L of broth.

    It’s a bit too blend and tangy. Also would not add tomotoes to the recipe.

    Would have been great if there were an actual link to the directions. After purchasing all of the ingredients, I had to just "wing it" because of no directions.

    This was tasty. I love the tangy of lemongrass and citrus. Had to use powdered lemongrass and lime leaves, but still enjoyed it. I chickened out on the fish sauce and shouldn’t have because the recipe was right.

    Delicious, but I did tweak it a bit. Added extra garlic for sure, twice the coconut milk. We like creamy. Also added snow peas and red bells. Delicious!

    Very good soup. Easy prep. Could not find Tom Yum so I substituted sweet chili sauce / sweet/sour sauce and added Sriracha for the spice.

    Yum Yum and more yum. Unfortunately I live in an area that I can't get some of these ingredients so I have to order online, but when I got all ingredients together it was relatively simple and delicious.
