6. Thai Chicken and Coconut Soup
This Asian-inspired soup is packed with protein and nutrients as well as the good fats from coconut milk. Serve with either jasmine rice or rice noodles.
Ingredients (serves 4):
1 Tbsp coconut oil or oil or your choice
½ pound of chicken breast, cubed
1 medium onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 Tbsp ginger, minced
1 cup carrots, diced
½ tsp of roasted chili paste or Thai curry paste
1 cup shiitake mushrooms, sliced
3 cups low-sodium chicken stock
Juice and zest of one lime
1 Tbsp fish sauce
1 14oz can coconut milk
¼ cup of cilantro, chopped
In a large pan heat the oil and brown the chicken over a medium heat and set to one side. Next, add the carrots, onions, ginger, garlic, and paste and saute until the vegetables are soft. Pour in the fish sauce, coconut milk and stock and simmer for around five minutes. Serve with rice or noodles and sprinkle with the chopped cilantro.
