Yes, that is a Christmas tree in the background that is yet to be taken down. Those are legos next to the soup. And this photo was indeed taken in our playroom. Feel better?
Good. Let’s talk about soup.
This is a dump-everything-in-the-crock-and-go recipe, which is my favorite kind. No precooking. No dirtying extra of dishes. Dump. Stir. Turn it on. It’s a broth-based soup with a hefty dose of coconut milk which makes it smooth as silk. Sweet and tangy. Savory and spicy. Warm and filling. We call this an umami soup — it has something that tickles every part of your palate.
