My go-to Thai restaurant inspired this curry soup. Shiitake mushrooms are my favorite, but any fresh mushroom will work. Fresh basil and lime add a burst of bright flavors. —Tre Balchowsky, Sausalito, California

"The broth was perfect, just spicy enough. I used the "Simply Asia, Thai Kitchen" brand curry paste, and fish sauce. You can vary the veggies you use. The bamboo shoots and baby corn are good. I also added some cauliflower instead of mushrooms and sweet red pepper."

"This was delicious! I fried the tofu in a little olive oil first but changed nothing else. The lime at the end is crucial. So good!"
