Thai Coconut Chicken Soup

Posted on

Soup round two for me this week!  Other than being sick, I love making soup because it is easy and makes enough to last a few days.  I’m super busy with school right now so this is definitely needed!  I somewhat based it this on this recipe from The Nourishing Cook.  It turned out really well!

Thai Coconut Chicken Soup
1 can coconut milk
2 C chicken broth
3 C cooked chicken (I used most of a whole chicken I had cooked in the crockpot)
1 bag spinach
1 tsp red chili flakes
salt & pepper
1/2 onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 T coconut oil

Saute the onions and garlic in the coconut oil until onions are slightly translucent and mostly cooked.  Toss into a large pot with all other ingredients and let simmer on low for about an hour.  Enjoy!

Spicy Sweet Potato Beef Soup

I had other meal plans when I bought these ingredients, but then I got sick and decided I needed soup.  I was seriously annoyed that I managed to stay healthy all winter, but then got sick at the very end of April!  But I’m overworked, overtired and surrounded by people who don’t take very good care of themselves (med students).  A lot of sleep and this soup and I felt much better!

Spicy Sweet Potato Beef Soup

1 lb. ground beef
1/2 onion, chopped
5 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 tsp. turmeric
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. paprika
1 jalapeno, seeded and chopped
1 green pepper, seeded and chopped
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
2 C. chicken broth

Cook ground beef with onion and garlic for a few minutes until partially cooked.  Add seasoning and peppers and cook until beef is done.

Add beef mixture, sweet potatoes, and broth in a large pot.  Simmer on low about an hour.

Serve with avocado on top.
