Rich yet light, this Thai classic uses decorative stalks of lemongrass, lime leaves and galangal to infuse the soup. So warn uninitiated guests that these pungent aromatics are not very palatable. You may choose to remove them prior to serving. Straw mushrooms are only available canned in the U.S. While these are fine, feel free to substitute fresh oyster mushrooms.
