Update: I’ve been updating some of my older posts on MerryAboutTown. I first published this recipe back in 2012. Many recipes would have fallen by the wayside since then but this one has stood the test of time. It is one of my very favourite soups and many of my friends have said the same. This easy Thai Coconut Soup with Chicken is a must try. You will be surprised by the depth of flavor when it is so very easy! Links below may be affiliate links. If you purchase through them, I will make a small amount but your price will not change.
Original post: After a week of snow, all I wanted was a big bowl of soup….creamy Thai coconut soup with lemongrass and lime juice to be exact. Yes, please!
This soup is pretty quick and simple. I made it while Dewey and Evan were having fun at the sledding hill. I can see tweaking the recipe depending on what vegetables I have in the fridge. No broccoli? Sub onions and carrots or maybe sweet potato (though you may want to par boil it first). Don’t want chicken? Try it with shrimp. Whatever you add to the soup pot, you can rest assured that it will be delicious!
The soup base has a fantastic flavor that will work well with many variations. I cut back the coconut milk to one can (down from 3 in the original recipe) to cut down on fat and calories while still getting the creamy, yumminess of coconut milk. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
Soup weather has definitely arrived! What is your favorite kind of soup?
