Thai Inspired Cold Coconut Soup
Difficulty 5 minutes Serves 1-2
An elegantly light and refreshing coconut milk-based soup with an explosion of bright Thai-inspired flavors! Creamy coconut milk blends with fresh galangal, cilantro, lime, lemon chili, green onion and cucumber to form a truly mouthwatering combination of flavors. This is a cold soup, so if you want a little extra dose of heat simply blend in a few pinches of cayenne. Recipe by Chris Anca of Tales of a Kitchen
Ingredients 2 cups coconut milk (recipe below if you want to make it from scratch)
Directions 1) Make the coconut milk first by adding the ingredients to a blender. Blitz for few seconds until you have frothy milk.
2) Strain coconut milk using a nut milk bag or a fine sieve. Return the milk to the blender and reserve the pulp to use in raw sweets. Store it in the fridge for up to a couple of days or in the freezer for more.
3) Add the rest of the ingredients for the soup to the coconut milk in the blender and whiz them until you have a smooth soup. Do not over process as it will warm up.
4) Serve right away with toppings of choice.
