Coconut Thai Soup

Posted May 20 2012 10:59pm
Fabulous Coconut Thai Soup!

As you are learning from my last recipe  I Am Nuts About Coconuts I am really loving coconuts these days. I continue to enjoy the fresh coconut water . It  so delicious and refreshing.This is also a terrific choice on the go.

When I am creating recipes, I often need to have extra on hand because much of the fresh coconut meat is gone before I begin. You will always find coconut water, milk and shredded coconut on hand here in our home. How fabulous that it is so healthy too!

Nevin has been trying several methods of opening these and really finds that having a  good ceramic knife helps.

BENEFITS OF COCONUTS
  • Coconut is highly nutritious and rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals
  • The coconut provides a nutritious source of meat, juice, milk, and oil
  • Improves insulin secretion and utilization of blood glucose
  • Prevents wrinkles, sagging skin, and age spots
  • Helps prevent obesity and overweight problems
  • Functions as a protective antioxidan

 

On a recent visit to  The Raw Food Institute   to visit my mentor, Lisa Wilson, I was fortunate enough to arrive in time for lunch. A wonderful raw food chef Steve Stewart and his wife Chris were preparing the menu.  As luck would have it, Steve had an amazing Coconut Thai Soup.

On April 21 st, Nevin and I celebrated our 21 st  wedding anniversary and I wanted to make a special celebration dinner.

We began with Steve’s  Coconut Thai Soup.

In preparation for this post, I searched for some variations to share but they all had either chicken and/or sugar. My personal health journey   has taught me that sugar is a no – no so I am offering this for your enjoyment. Now with the warm weather approaching, I know this will be a regular at our table. Each meal is its own celebration.

COCONUT THAI SOUP

Ingredients
Coconut water and meat form one young coconut

Note: if you do not have a fresh coconut use coconut water and shredded coconut.

2T  Braggs or coconut aminos

2T olive oil

2T lime

1 garlic clove (Steve loves his garlic but this is way too much for me. A snip is more than enough to begin with. Work to find your own proportions. )

1T curry

1T turmeric

Place all ingredients into food processor and mix.

When I served this wonderful dish, I topped it off with some fresh dill.

Other toppings can include

Shredded coconut

Curry

Turmeric

Sprouts (I never pass up an opportunity to add sprouts)

Please share your ideas with us.

To your health,
Elaine & Nevin
