It’s that time of the year again.
When the weather gets colder people usually like to eat more soup. I know you remember them Campbell’s commercials. People drinking soup out of thermos’ nd shxt.
But I’m pretty sure at some point you gotta get tired of eating tomato soup, or chicken noodle, or whatever tingles your tastebuds. So let’s put some flava in ya palette.
Thai Coconut Soup.
You should already know it’s going to taste good because it sounds exotic. Anything you see on this blog that has “Thai” in it is some good shxt. On Gawd.
Look at this.
You ain’t even know I finessed all that shxt in there huh. You thought you was just lookin at a bowl of bland ass broth with some green shxt in there. But nah.
You have to do certain things to add flavor and you have to make a few subtle adjustments to liven some shxt up. That’s why seasoning is and will forever be the key to good tasting food.
You also gotta understand that each part of the recipe gotta be treated with respect. If you combining things make sure to season them independently to establish a flavor for that part and then bring the rest of it together.
That was quality advice right there.
In conclusion what did we learn:
- Anything “Thai” is some fye
- Seasoning is the major key to good tasting food
- Season ingredients independently of each other
