I have only been writing this blog since April and seem to have already done two soup recipes and I'm about to do another one, so there! I do love home-made soup and can eat it even if it is hot outside and other people are eating ice cream or salad and I'm sitting there with a steaming bowl of thick soup!
I like to think of this soup as a summery one as it is fresh and light with delicious Thai flavours, I just made this for myself so there isn't large amounts of ingredients but you can very easily adjust it to your needs and taste!
1 Bag of spinach
1 onion chopped
clove of garlic
1/2 stalks lemon grass
Knob of ginger
Handful of frozen peas
Half a tin of Coconut milk
500ml home made chicken stock or just ready bought veg/chicken stock
1 small green chili
Start but gently frying the onion until soft then add the garlic and chili and fry for a further two minutes. Then stir in the vegetable stock and while that is simmering peel the outer layer from the lemon grass and finely chop the lower bulb part of the lemon grass and discard the top parts before adding to the soup and cooking for 10 Min's.
Next add the frozen peas and cook for 3 Min's before adding the spinach and cook for a further 4-5 Min's.
Now add the coconut milk, lime juice and some black pepper and gently re-heat. You can add some cream, sour cream or Greek yogurt if you want to.
