Today, we're experimenting with Thai cuisine with a modern twist - we’re crafting a mouthwatering Thai Peanut Noodle Soup infused with the fragrant essence of lemongrass.

Thai Peanut Noodle Soup with Lemongrass Infused Broth

Thai cuisine is renowned for its rich and diverse flavor profile, characterized by the perfect balance of sweet, sour, salty, and spicy notes. It's a cuisine that celebrates the use of fresh herbs, spices, and aromatics to create dishes that are both delicious and nourishing. With this recipe, we're paying homage to this culinary tradition, while adding our own creative flair to the mix. What makes it even more awesome is that this recipe is 100% vegan, oil free and gluten free.

At the core of this recipe are Dr. McDougall's Pad Thai Noodle Soup Cups , a convenient and flavorful base for our soup. These soup cups are not only gluten-free but also packed with authentic Thai flavors, ensuring that every spoonful is a delightful taste of Thailand. With Dr. McDougall's, you can enjoy the essence of Thai cuisine without any hassle or compromise on taste.

However, what truly elevates this dish is the infusion of lemongrass into the broth. Lemongrass, with its distinctive citrusy flavor and refreshing aroma, adds a depth and complexity to the soup. Combined with the creamy richness of peanut butter, the tangy zest of lime juice, and the savory depth of soy sauce, the lemongrass-infused broth creates a truly remarkable mix of  flavors.

To add a touch of freshness and texture to our soup, we're incorporating baby bok choy, a tender and nutritious leafy green vegetable commonly used in Asian cuisine. Not only does it provide a vibrant green color to the dish, but it also contributes a subtle sweetness and crunch that perfectly complements the other ingredients.

Of course, no Thai dish would be complete without a bit of heat! If you're a fan of spicy food, feel free to add some sliced chili peppers or a drizzle of sriracha sauce to your soup. And for those who prefer a milder flavor, simply adjust the amount of chili peppers to suit your taste.

Without further ado, let's roll up our sleeves and dive into the delicious world of Thai cuisine!

Let's begin by assembling all the essential ingredients. You'll require one packet of seasoning from Dr. McDougall's Pad Thai Noodle Gluten-Free Soup Cup, garlic, agave, lemongrass paste, lime juice, peanut butter, soy sauce, water, and non-dairy milk.

In a medium-sized pot, combine the seasoning packet from the Pad Thai Noodle Soup Cup with the finely chopped garlic, a touch of agave for sweetness, aromatic lemongrass paste, a squeeze of fresh lime juice for zing, creamy peanut butter for richness, soy sauce for depth of flavor, water for the base, and non-dairy milk for creaminess. Stir the ingredients together until they blend well.

Place the pot on the stove over medium heat, allowing the mixture to gradually come to a gentle boil. Stir occasionally to ensure all the flavors meld together beautifully. Once the soup is bubbling, it's time to introduce the star ingredients – the noodles and baby bok choy.

Carefully add the noodles from the soup cup into the pot, ensuring they are fully immersed in the flavorful broth. Alongside, place the baby bok choy to infuse its delicate flavor into the soup. Let them simmer in the broth for approximately 5 minutes or until the noodles reach the desired softness and the bok choy turns tender.

If you find the noodles have absorbed too much broth, you can adjust the consistency by adding another ¼ cup of water. Stir gently to incorporate the additional liquid into the soup, ensuring it maintains its rich and aromatic base.

Once the noodles are soft and the bok choy is tender, your Thai Peanut Noodle Soup1` is ready to be served. Ladle the fragrant soup into bowls, ensuring each serving is generously filled with noodles and bok choy.

To elevate the presentation and add a crunch element, sprinkle chopped peanuts over the soup. For a burst of freshness and color, garnish with sliced green onions. If desired, accompany each bowl with lime slices for an additional tangy twist.

Now, take a moment to enjoy the rich flavors of Thailand that shine through in each mouthful of this delicious Thai Peanut Noodle Soup with Lemongrass Infused Broth. Whether you're craving a warm and comforting meal on a chilly evening or seeking a refreshing option for a light lunch on a sunny day, this soup is sure to satisfy your palate and leave you wanting another bowl.
