One of my favorite immune supporting recipes is Spicy Thai Coconut Soup! This recipe is super tasty and easy to make.
Ingredients
  • Two 14-ounce cans coconut milk (lite or full-fat)
  • 4 cups vegetable broth (or one 32-ounce container)
  • 1 piece fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime zest
  • 14-ounc tub extra-firm tofu, cubed
  • 1 cup crimini mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup tomatoes, cubed
  • 4 Thai chilies (or any other spicy chili), chopped, optional
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 ½ tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
Instructions
  1. Grate lime zest into a small dish and set aside. Be careful not to grate into the white lime pith as this will cause your soup to be bitter.
  2. Using a medium pot, combine coconut milk, vegetable broth, ginger, lime zest, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer on medium for 10 minutes stirring occasionally.
  3. Add tofu, mushrooms, tomatoes, and chilies. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat and simmer for another 10 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat, add maple syrup, lime juice, salt, and mix well. Add fresh cilantro before serving.
