Coconut Curry Soup

coconut curry soup_1170x617

There is nothing like a big bowl of soup in the winter and we love to make it into a meal. This recipe is total comfort food with the creamy coconut milk and soft rice all with some leftover chicken.

Feel free to use vegetable broth and tofu or leave out the chicken completely for vegetarians.

If you like spicy food add a minced chile pepper in with the garlic or add some cayenne pepper with curry powder. And if you don’t like curry use chili powder.
