  22. (shrimp and rice soup) This is the answer to the question "if Thais eat so

  23. much hot and spicy food, what do they eat for breakfast?" (but they also

  24. eat som tam and curries...)

  25. khao tam is a fairly bland and innocuous soup, that is always considered a

  26. meal in itself (never served with other foods). Whilst it can be made with

  27. almost any meat, it is most commonly made with seafood combinations, or just plain khao tam.

  28. Method Saute the garlic and reserve as a garnish.

  29. In a saucepan, boil the stock, and add the celery, soy sauce, pepper and rice, and bring back to a boil.

  30. Add the shrimp and cook until it turns pink.

  31. Serve immediately, garnished with the sauteed garlic and coriander leaves.
