Thai-Style Chicken Soup with Basil

72 mins (prep 45)
16 ingredients
makes 4 to 6 (main course) servings
It’s hard to understand why a soup that looks so simple needs to include so many ingredients. Why not just stir in a dollop of store-bought Thai curry paste instead and call it a day? One spoonful will reveal the answer: This soup has many layers in its complexity, but the overall effect is of cleanness and freshness—in short, well worth a trip to an Asian market. Adding a generous amount of chicken and serving the soup over jasmine rice might not be strictly traditional, but it transforms it into a satisfying meal.
