Thai soup is all about freshness!

This delicious soup is all about freshness. Thai food is well known for its fresh, healthy ingredients. Everything in this chicken coconut soup is cooked briefly, keeping the vegetables tender but firm to the bite.

The Thai flavours are lemongrass, garlic, fish sauce, ginger, and the classic Thai ingredient, coconut milk. The generous amount of fresh cilantro and lime juice set this soup apart from traditional coconut soups.

If you are on the hunt for ethnic flavours, this diet-friendly, naturally gluten-free soup is a must try recipe. Quick and easy to prepare for light lunch or a starter for dinner. 

What we love about this spicy Thai chicken coconut soup is you can have a fresh, delicious soup on the table in thirty minutes. Enjoy!

      I love this recipe so much. We have done it the way it’s written and with variations on the veggies. I find its so easy just to add a bag of frozen veggies. It’s the best most flavorful soup that can be done in 30 minutes.
