Nigel Slater's simple Thai soup with coconut milk and rice noodles
Sprouted Kitchen's spiced lentil soup with coconut milk and kale
Both topped with sweet and salty chicken and fresh coriander
Apart from sporadic sun filled days it has been grey and miserable lately. I want to eat warming, comforting food but I'm not ready to start making stews yet so I have been all over soups. And I've been craving coconut milk in a big way. Life has been stressful and a bit upsetting recently and there is childish joy to its sweet creaminess. Special credit to Waitrose organic coconut milk which is by far the best supermarket coconut milk I've tried - thick and rich and not watery at all. Full fat forever.
Anyway, both of these recipes are full of enough wonderful healthy things and spice to make anyone feel better. They will cure what ails ya. Perfect for autumn and illnesses.
