Thai Shrimp and Mushroom Soup, Unauthentic Style

Made something healthy for the Missus this evening and realized i can cook without bacon or cheese! Who knew? So, anyway, this turned into a hearty meal, chock full of yummy goodness and incredibly healthy and yummy. I’ll even try to make up a recipe for you.

 

I started off by sauteeing about 1/2 cup each of diced red onion and red pepper until they were softened, med-low heat

Then i added 3 cloves of minced garlic and about 20 chopped up mushrooms, allowing them to sweat just a little

I followed that up with a whole carton of Thai natural vegan friendly stock from Wegmans. Here is a link to it and other fine prodcuts

Anyway, i also added a little pineapple chili sauce , a pinch of turmeric for color and a touch of sushi vinegar and brought it all to a roaring boil

Then i added a good handful of peeled shrimp and let it cook for another 5 minutes or so until the shrimp was cooked through. I served it on a bed of whole grain rice and fresh raw spinach with a few fresh sprigs of cilantro. The Missus ate it up in a matter of moments and pronounced it good. The Hungryboys swore they would never even try it, no m atter what i threatened them with. O well. Dig the pics and make some soup! If it doesn’t turn out just right, its just a different kind of soup, that’s all.  Also, see how shitty these pictures look??? I need a new camera!! Please send cash or money order or just a new damn Camera!!!

    Ahh, Thai food. Will this go with a nice off dry Oregon Gewurtztraminer?

    Also, it might not be the camera, it might be the lighting and the camera operator. If you need a professional photographer (self proclaimed) I will work for food.

    • i used to know a girl whose nickname was the “Orgeon Gerurtztraminer” for less than obvious reasons. She too was willing to work for food. Unfortunately, times were tough so we changed the job description to willing to work AS food…she went well with a nice Muscatel

  2. Steve,
    if you can ever add daylight to you photos then you will see an instant transformation. (yes sadly I know how next to impossible this is to do in the winter months) Also a tripod will help either a real one or a stack of books, something level to rest the camera on etc…
    Great looking recipe (sans mushrooms for me – allergic) sub broccoli perhaps? and probably with double the garlic LOL
