Check back, we'll post the recipe soon. For now, listen to the episode above!



Still working on getting Jonah's exact recipe, so here's a link to another good version, using chicken in the soup (which is traditional). Of course you can leave the meat out and just add extra mushrooms. I recommend using the fish sauce, however, even in a veggie version. This tiny amount of meat will add so much authentic flavor! Note that the version below doesn't use lime zest like Jonah does, but it does add bright yellow turmeric. Feel free to customize your own version.

tom ka gai soup

hey sounds great, I would like to make it and will be looking for the recipe.

say have you thought about doing video clip so we could see how you do it.

Is there a place you archive your shows?

thanks for listening!

videos would be really fun, but less so if I don't have a production team around to help me! that's one beautiful thing about radio--one person can do a lot on his or her own. in terms of an archive, it can be found under the programs menu. Here's a link:


Vegan good! mmmm mmm good. and healthy! :)
