Thai cuisine is often one of the most misunderstood. Many people associate the cuisine with extreme heat and spices. However, a trip to Giant of Siam (or even trying their Nashua delivery) will show otherwise!Â
Sure, you can spice things up to extreme levels, but you can also eliminate the heat altogether. For instance, when you try Thai soups, most are delightfully non-spicy! Speaking of, here are three must-try Thai soups that are sure to warm your soul on a chilly winter day:
This popular Thai soup is made with chicken, coconut milk, lemongrass, ginger, and mushrooms. The broth is sweet and sour, with a creamy texture from the coconut milk. It’s also typically served with a side of rice and is often garnished with cilantro and lime wedges.
For those that enjoy the heat, this spicy and sour soup is made with shrimp, lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, and mushroom. Its defining feature is its strong and distinct flavors, which combine sour, spicy, and savory. You will also often find Tom Yum with a side of rice garnished with cilantro and lime wedges.
This is a simple and clear broth soup with chicken or pork and mixed vegetables. It’s low in calories, so it makes a great light meal. The broth is mild in flavor, and the common seasonings are soy sauce, pepper, and lime juice.
