Have you ever had the delicious and well-known Thai soup, Tom Kha? This recipe was inspired by the tangy and savory flavors of that traditional dish. This Immune Boosting Thai Coconut soup is one of my favorite soups to make all year round, but especially during cold and flu season. Just a simple reminder that food is medicine. What we put into our bodies is what we get out of them. Watch me live on KGW8 in January to learn how to make this soup!
