Soups are my go to recipe! I love the simplicity – yet complexity of them 🙂 The process to make a soup is usually pretty uncomplicated yet the final product is erupting with flavor.
This mildly spiced soup is thick and wholesome with so many different flavors – all Thai inspired of course. I love the combination of Coconut and curry with a splash of lime! Doesn’t get much better than that… You have to try it!
