With the coming ice pellets and snow forecast for winter storm Helena, I became inspired to cook a Tamarind soup. Diann and I had been to a new Asian food store in New Bern while off of our catamaran Yacht A Fun. Actually I was browsing for curry powder when I came upon packets of Knorr brand soup mix. Canadian soup mix in an Asian store- it had to be good!
To the basic broth I added:
Red bell pepper;
Brown mushrooms; and
Sautéed sliced chicken.
Upon serving we added fresh squeezed lime juice.
Honestly, I’ve never had a better Asian soup- even at a Thai restaurant.
For our next pot of Tamarind soup, I’ll use shrimp.
Cooking on a Gemini catamaran is still as fun as it was when we started our adventure.
