Tom Yum Zucchini Noodles

Tom yum noodles are a great way to enjoy the quintessential Tom yum soup from Thailand. The word ‘tom’ in Thai means ‘boil’ and ‘yum’ refers to the broth mix that gives it the iconic spicy, sour, and fragrant flavors that we crave all the time. And this time, we created a vegan version swapping out carbs for high fiber zucchini noodles to make this soup even more refreshing. This Mekhala tom yum paste recipe is so easy, you will want to make this every day.
