It’s beginning to be soup weather. Here in South Carolina we’ve been getting a good bit of cold and rain lately, so soup warms the bones. I know, I know…I live in the south and to all you northerners, it’s not really that cold (at all) down here. But my toes are cold and my fingers are cold, so just let me huddle by my fireplace with a blanket and sip my soup and feel good about the world.
This yummy soup is something I came up with one day for lunch when I knew I wanted soup and I also knew I wanted something different. It turned out to be sort of Thai-ish in ingredients, but I’m no ethnic cuisine expert so I doubt this soup is really all that authentic. Therefore, the name. This is my take on Thai. It’s also Fuel Pull and flavor full, and it smells like the food court at the mall. *happiness*
This recipe is for a single serve bowl of soup (a rather large bowl of soup), but you could definitely multiply the recipe if this is something your family would like (or if you would like to have leftovers for yourself for lunches all week long).
As written, the soup carries a good bit of spice, so feel free to adjust that to your own tastes (the Rotel tomatoes add spice, so if you don’t want a spicy soup you may wish to substitute plain diced tomatoes).
You can find this recipe in my cookbook, Necessary Food.
- 1½ cups low fat broth of choice (I used turkey broth made from bouillon)
- ½ cup unsweetened almond or coconut milk (from a carton - not the canned kind)
- Additional bouillon for a stronger flavor, if desired
- 1 T tomato paste
- 2 T defatted peanut flour (or more, to taste; you could also use 1 T natural peanut butter for an S option)
- ¼ cup Rotel-style tomatoes
- Chopped nonstarchy veggies of choice (clean out your fridge...I used green onion, mushrooms, spinach, and onion...broccoli would be good)
- Up to 4 oz. lean protein of choice, such as chopped cooked chicken breast
- ½ tsp. chili powder
- Dash of red pepper
- ¼ tsp. garlic powder
- Salt to taste (if needed)
- Sprinkle of peanuts, optional (S option)
- Stir all ingredients together in a small saucepan and simmer until the vegetables are soft and everything is warmed through. The longer you simmer, the better the flavors. Serves 1 (feel free to make a larger batch, if desired).
