Thai Coconut Soup

January 6, 2016

Any time I go out for Thai food (which is quite often) the first thing I order is a big bowl of Tom Yum or soup with coconut milk. I just love the sweet, sour, spicy combination that it lends and there really is nothing that warms me up quite like a hot bowl of soup on a cold winters day (besides maybe snuggles with Jamie and Milo). I decided to give making a Thai coconut soup a go a few weeks ago before we left for Halifax, and although the results weren’t quite like our favorite Thai restaurants soup, it was pretty darn close and made for a whole bunch of leftovers which were enjoyed for the following few days.
