Coconut Soup

Millie Copper
This is a soup I discovered in Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon. It is a super easy and tasty. A thin soup, so I usually serve it in mugs alongside a salad or a savory custard. See the recipe notes for a heartier version.
Course Soup


  • 1 quart broth
  • 1 can whole coconut milk
  • Pinch dried chile flakes OR a whole hot pepper, or the top of a hot pepper; add additional if you'd like it hotter.
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger fresh is best or 1/3 teaspoon powdered ground ginger
  • sea salt
  • 3 tablespoon lemon juice about 1 fresh lemon


  • Boil broth.
  • Add remaining ingredients.

Add veggies for a heartier soup to eat with a spoon;
Saute 2 or 3 peeled and sliced carrots, 1 small chopped onion, and around 1 cup sliced mushrooms in  2 tablespoons butter until soft.
Proceed with recipe as above.
