Thai Coconut Curry Soup
The temperatures are frigid here in Michigan which calls for big pots of soup in my household. I love Thai food and am frequently attempting to make it at home- try my Thai Coconut Red Curry. I love red coconut curry and decided to make it into a soup. Thai Coconut Curry Soup is actually pretty simple to make and can be made in large quantities if you want and frozen for later. This Thai soup is nutritious and sure to warm you up on a cold day.

Thai Chicken Soup
It's the new year and now that the holidays are over, I am trying to find ways to fit lots of veggies into my diet. Not everything is in season and I certainly am not craving huge salads so soups are the way to go. Someone told me this a couple of years ago and it is so true: soup is the salad of winter. You can fit just as many nutritious foods in a soup as you can in a salad but it is just a little bit different form. Since I heard that, I have thought of soup much differently.

Thai Coconut Curry Chicken Soup
I recently made a smoky vegetable barley soup that I will have to share soon as well! When deciding what ingredients to use for this Thai Coconut Curry Soup, it was kind of hard because there are so many vegetables that would work well. I used chicken but if you don't want to use meat, feel free to just skip it or add tofu for protein. Use whatever vegetables that you want such as eggplant, green beans, broccoli, carrots, peppers, mushrooms, onions, garlic, zucchini, summer squash, pea pods and more.

Thai Vegetable Soup
How I determined which veggies were truly in this soup was to go to my local produce market to see what looked the best and what was affordable this time of year. Feel free to swap in whatever veggies you want.

Have you cooked with bone broth yet? I got into this "trend" last year when stocking up on some and have been using it for my soups since. I love the Kitchen Basics Original Chicken Bone Broth which you can buy on Amazon. It tastes just like regular chicken broth but has 10 grams of protein per 8.25 oz serving and only has 50 calories. Such a great source of protein without it really seeming like it! It's made from real bones, organic vegetables, herbs and spices. I'm a huge fan.

Thai Coconut Vegetable SoupBone broth can be used just to sip on as a beverage as well as using it in a recipe in place of broth or stock. The Kitchen Basics Bone Broth is the only bone broth certified as Heart Healthy by the American Heart Association. I also used Thai Kitchen Coconut Milk and Red Curry Paste which is my go-to Thai brand that can easily be found at most grocery stores. They taste delicious and go super well in this soup.
