Something in the Soup

Coconut Soup
Delicious coconut soup
 
I know it’s not really soup season, but you CAN eat soup at any time, especially coconut soup.  I love coconut anything, soup, candy, milk, flakes, butter, oil, whatever it is, I usually like it.  The very first coconut soup I ever ate was a chilled sweet soup at a resaraunt I worked at in college. It had berries, zest of lime and coconut milk in it and it was amazing. Since then I have always been totally open to eating any and all coconut soups.  The first coconut soup I recommend you start with is one I made back in 2010 and you can find it HERE!  That soup is absolutely delicious and I highly recommend you make it.  This soup I made recently is in the same family, but a little different.  It’s light and full of vegetables and also relatively quick to make.
