Sunday's Soup

Before the day gets completely away from me, I wanted to share a very simple soup that I love to make. It all begins with a packet,

This is the most wonderful stuff!! If by chance your store does not carry this, you  can google the name and find the company. I have ordered this, so regardless of where you are, you can get this little packet of wonderful. Inside the package are two small packages. For this soup, we will use both.
I call this soup,
Creamy Coconut Ginger Cilantro Soup
 I like to make this soup when I'm in a hurry. It does not take long to make.
The ingredients;
1 package of A Taste of Thai Coconut Ginger Soup Base
2 14 oz. cans of Lite Coconut Milk
4 cans of water, or you may use a chicken broth
2 cubes of Knorr Vegetable Bouillon
2 cups of cooked brown rice
1 bunch of green onions
1/2 cup of finely chopped cilantro
Juice of 1 lime
4 to 5 carrots sliced
1 10 oz. package of fried extra firm tofu, you can also use chicken or even shrimp
Open ginger packets and place in pot. Add the 2 cans of coconut milk and the 4 cans of water. Slice carrots and add to pot. Bring to a boil. Add chopped green onions. Cook until carrots are tender.
Add the juice of 1 lime to the rice and stir in cilantro.
 Chop up tofu or your choice of meat. 
Once carrots are tender, add the rice and the tofu to pot. Allow to simmer for a few minutes. Your soup is ready!
I can't wait for dinner!!
This soup is very aromatic. I have not read the ingredients on the package of the soup base, but whatever is in it, it's GOOD!!
Hope you have had a lovely Sunday!

  1. I want to try this soup. It looks delicious. Thank you for sharing it. I love, though cannot drink it anymore, Thai tea. Thai foods are amazingly good.

    1. If you like Thai food, you'll like this soup. The mix of ginger, lime and cilantro is really quite lovely. And the best part about this soup is that it is super quick to make. Enjoy!
