Thai Chicken Coconut Soup



The weekend was busy, over 135 kids knocked on our door for Halloween. It is more than last year, probably because it was Friday. We were lucky not to get any rain all night. It was cold but parents dressed up their kids really well. It was nice to see that some parents wore costumes as well. Princess costumes were popular in my area.

Days are getting shorter now and it's colder outside. At this time of the year we crave more stews and soups. I like to try different recipes, and this time, I decided to make a Thai Chicken Coconut Soup. It is very easy to make and I can say it's ''East Made Easy''. Coconut milk adds a creamy texture and combines deliciously with the chicken. I added edamame beans because I like to add colors to my food, and it is also packed with fiber, protein iron and vitamins. I have travelled to Thailand and they do make the world's best soups.

What's your favourite soup recipe?

  1. This looks unbelievably good! We only had 3 kids stop by for candy--but it was also super, super cold.

  3. Nice! I actually have a half full jar of red curry paste in my fridge that needs using up. I bought it for a fish recipe that also used coconut milk, so your recipe is giving me some good ideas! I've never used coriander before, so I might go for cilantro instead since I keep that around for tacos. Pinning this for later! :)

    1. I use curry paste even in burgers, love it in so many different recipes. Coriander is another name for cilantro.
