Statistics show that it costs much less to stay fit than it does to heal health ailments or complications brought on by not living a healthy lifestyle. To value your own body and to provide it knowledge, nutrition and proper exercise is the least expensive commodity. It is also the highest calling or responsibility one can have to him/herself.

Homemade Coconut Thai Soup (Simple, Quick and Delish!)

Posted by Wendy Lucas on November 19, 2015 at 11:35 AM Comments comments (0)
Coconut Thai Soup

Sorry I do not have the measurements. When I make this soup I just add all the ingredients to the pot by eye balling and tasting as I go. It works every time! =)



Ingredients:
organic chicken thighs (you could use tofu, tempeh, beef, or shrimp too)
brown rice
canned coconut milk
beef broth or chicken broth (I just use the broth from cooking the chicken)
sea salt
fresh garlic cloves
sriracha hot sauce
honey or maple syrup (optional)
1-2 limes
assortment of whatever vegetables you like/have at the time
I like to use:
frozen veggie medley (corn, julienne carrots, green peas, green beans mix)
slices mushrooms
tomatoes 

Instructions:

1.) In Advance: Place organic chicken thighs in Crock Pot with water and sea salt, low for 6-8 hours or high for about 3-4 hours (until cooked through). Alternatively you could use any protein you already have cooked, and just purchase a chicken or beef broth instead. Also - Cook your brown rice in advance before you're ready to make the soup.
2.) Place a pan on stove. turn on medium heat. add 1 full can of coconut milk, and a few cups of the broth to the plan, add sea salt, lime, tiny bit of honey or maple syrup (optional), and sriracha hot sauce to taste. Stir Well!
3.) add slices of fresh garlic, chopped mushrooms, and all other veggies.
4.) cook on medium to high heat until garlic and mushrooms are softened.
5.) once veggies are softened, add in your cooked protein and brown rice that you already have prepared. Place into a bowl and enjoy! =)
