Coconut milk is more than just an ingredient to curries it is also a popular foundation for Asian soups both spicy and sweet, especially in Thailand.
This is a typical Thai chicken soup. I like the thick spicy coconut broth with hints of lime, lemongrass and galangal.
This is a creamy pumpkin soup that uses coconut milk for a dairy free recipe. Curry and roasted banana add an Indian touch. Perfect for the cold winter months.
Coconut milk makes this red lentil soup unique and creamy whilst remaining vegan. Serve with your favourite crusty bread and wine.
Garlic, ginger, lemongrass, chilli flakes, coriander and cumin flavour this Thai-inspired chicken and coconut milk soup. Fragrant, spicy and delicious.
I have probably given this recipe to over 100 people. That is not an exaggeration. This soup is really that good! I vary the greens every day depending on what I have available. Chopped green beans work really well. You can omit the lentils, and just put in extra vegetables if you are intolerant to legumes. I included them in the basic recipe in order to get some protein and extra fibre. Whatever the mix of veggies – the coconut is the star of this soup. YUMMO!
