Servings: 2
Prep Time:
 15 min
Total Time: 15 minutes
       Ingredients How to?

  • 2-3 crushed chili peppers
  • 5 sprigs chopped cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 crushed lemon grass
  • 2/3 lime
  • 1/2 lb Oyster Mushroom
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon Nam Prig Pow Optional
Tips and Techniques:  For a vegetarian soup, substitute mushroom soy sauce for fish sauce. Use vegetarian nam prig pow or chili oil. You can substitute other mushrooms for oyster mushrooms. Or you can add a mixture of mushrooms. You only need to have boiled the lemon grass for a couple minutes to bring out the flavor.
  • Put water and chicken bones in a pot. A 2 quart pot will fit a half or whole body or 2-3 legs and wings.
  • Once it starts to boil, then turn it down to a simmer. Add the other ingredients. The key to clear soup is never let it boil too hard and never close the lid.
  •  When the water is boiling, add the rest of the ingredients. Let it boil for at least half an hour. The longer it boils the better it tastes. Just keep adding water and use low heat.
  • Toward the end, taste it and see if it needs some more soy sauce or fish sauce. You will find that the soy adds a lot of flavor.
