This is the soup I used to order when we had take out. I’ve meant to make our own for the longest time, procrastinating because I expected it to be more complicated. A little research, a quick trip to the store and now I can make not just a bowl, but a whole pot of Tom Yum soup in our slow cooker — who needs delivery?
We could use some spring weather though… there was snow falling when I woke up this morning! Earlier in the week it was snowing in Alberta, which I thought that was relatively normal at this time of year. But during my lifetime, here in Toronto, snow in early April is rare, let alone in the second half of the month! If you’re still experiencing winter weather where you live, you will appreciate the comfort and flavors of this easy slow cooker soup even more.
