Cancer Fighting Tom Kha

Tom Kha

Tom Kha is my absolutely favorite Thai meal! It soothes the soul, is easy to make in big batches, and is packed with cancer-fighting ingredients like ginger and mushrooms! 

While sipping your soup and pretending like you are on a Thai island, take a moment to learn why I advise including some organic and free-range meat in your diet.


  • Half of one onion, sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • Half of a Jalapeno pepper, sliced
  • 3 quarter-inch long slices of ginger
  • 1 lemongrass stalk
  • 1 tbsp red Thai curry paste
  • 4 cups chicken or vegetable stock
  • 2 cans of full-fat coconut milk
  • 2 small chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces (optional)
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • Few drops of stevia, to taste
  • 3 tbsp fish sauce
  • 3 tbsp lime juice, more to taste
  • 3 green onions, sliced to garnish 
  • Chopped cilantro to garnish


  • Combine onion, garlic, jalapeño, ginger, lemongrass, red curry paste, and broth in to slow cooker
  • Cook on high for 3 hours
  • Use a slotted spoon to remove all aromatics, leaving broth behind
  • Add in coconut milk, chicken, and mushrooms
  • Cook on high for 1-2 hours
  • Add stevia, fish sauce, and lime juice. Taste and add more of either ingredient to taste
  • Ladle into bowls, top with green onions and cilantro
  • Saves well for leftovers!
