Coconut soup with rice noodles

by Kam


Welcome 2017 and to all of you a happy new year! I hope you had a good start and joyous holidays with your loved ones! Some days have already passed in the new year and it’s about time for a new post over here. The last weeks were filled with good holiday food, Christmas cookies, Stollen and cakes but now some fresh dishes and tastes are in order. Just like this really delicious coconut soup with rice noodles, tofu and veggies. Real simple to make but so very yummy. I anyway love anything with coconut milk, and curries are some of my absolute favourite dishes. They’re just so versatile and you can prepare them with so many different vegetables, spices and other ingredients. If you’re familiar with typical red or yellow Thai curries, then this coconut soup just might remind you of them. Wishing you a great day and weekend ahead!
