I’m not a huge soup lover. Not even in the coldest days. However, there are some days when I just want to have nothing but soup! Weird huh? I’m not a huge fan of making soup from scratch but I had a sudden craving for Thai Coconut Soup and my craving was definitely satisfied after this meal! Funny thing is, I have no memory of ever consuming that kind of soup in my life. For all I know… this craving was probably for some coconut haha. This recipe is definitely not your typical authentic Thai coconut soup. But it does the trick!
Thai Coconut Soup
2 small onions
4 cloves of garlic
2 inches of ginger
2 tablespoon of oil
A bunch of green onions
4 cups of water *
1 can of coconut milk
1 tablespoon of fish sauce
2 Thai Chili
Fish tofu **
1 cup of edamame (shelled)
Makes 4 servings
1) Peel skin and chop onions, garlic and ginger into small pieces. Saute them in oil until they become soft. Chop the green onions and saute them in the pot with the other vegetables. Once all vegetables are soft, add water, coconut milk and fish sauce to the pot. Stir and let it boil.
2) Once it starts to boil, reduce the heat to a simmer and add the Thai chili. Let the soup continue to simmer for 5 minutes.
3) Add the tofu and edamame
4) Add salt and pepper for taste and more green onions if needed.
* For this recipe I used water. You can also use vegetable stock for more taste.
** I had fish tofu already in the freezer. You can use firm tofu instead.
