Thai-inspired Coconut Milk Soup, Paleo (Chicken & Shrimp options)

Thai-inspired Coconut Milk Soup, Paleo (Chicken & Shrimp options)

 

(Originally published on 5 April 2016 at https://CornFreeHippie.com)

One of my favorite cuisines is Thai, but unfortunately because Baby-Foodie reacts to rice, I have been missing out on it...until now!

It was spring break, we were out of meat protein sources, everyone was hungry and I had been in the backyard where I smelled what seemed to be a coconut soup. It may have been a craving inspired scent. Nonetheless I took a look at my fridge which was pretty bare and came up with this quick soup. It would also be very tasty with chicken or shrimp if you have a safe for you source.

         Ingredients
2 Tbsp. coconut or avocado oil
2-inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and finely chopped
4 cloves minced garlic (optional)
1 large carrot, peeled & shredded
2 stalks celery, finely chopped
1 red, orange or yellow bell pepper, sliced
1 lb mushrooms, sliced
4 cups water
4 Tbsp. stock powder (vegan, paleo)
1 can full-fat coconut milk or cream
1-2 Tbsp. fish sauce;
Sea salt & ground black pepper to taste

         Method
In a stockpot, heat oil over a medium heat. Cook ginger (& garlic) while stirring, until softened. Add carrot, celery, bell pepper, & mushroom. Cook until softened. Add water, stock powder, coconut milk or cream & fish sauce. Bring soup to a boil. Serve when just a bit cooler. Add sea salt & black pepper if desired.

         Chicken option
1 lb. chicken small pieces

Add chicken with water, etc. Bring soup to a boil. Reduce to a simmer. Cook until chicken is cooked, about 15-20 mins. Add salt & pepper if desired.

         Shrimp option
1 lb. wild caught shrimp

Add shrimp with water, etc. Bring soup to a boil. Reduce to a simmer. Cook until shrimp is cooked, about 10-15 minutes. Add salt & pepper if desired.
