Thai is one of the types of Asian cuisines I love the most. Thai food is so fragrant, and has a perfect combination of spices, the balance between sweet and sour, salty and spicy flavors that really fascinates me. This soup is no exception. Fragrant, creamy, an explosion of flavors.
Adding to all that, it is also lowcarb, because as you all know, I follow a lowcarb/keto lifestyle and this soup fits perfectly into it.

Soup is not something I eat often, due to the high temperatures where I live, but this Thai soup is at the same time fresh and comforting, and ends up (hand in hand with gazpacho – check it here https://heelsandspices.com/2018/02/gazpacho/) being quite frequent in my house.
A few notes:
If you cannot find fresh lemon grass, use the dried form, but hydrate it in hot water for a couple of minutes before adding it to the soup. If you cannot find lemon grass at all, the result will not of course be the same, but add instead lime and lemon zest
I like Thai Basil, but that is not always available, so use any basil you like, but fresh please
If you cannot find kaffir lime leaves, use lemon leaves instead. The result will be slightly different but still tasty
