An easy raw food coconut soup recipe made from a young coconut and plenty of Thai spices, including ginger (or Thai galangal if you can find it), lime juice, curry powder, cilantro, and chile.
Fill it up with as many or as little veggies as you like. Perhaps some shredded greens or baby corn. And of course, you can make this raw Thai coconut soup as spicy as you like by piling on the chile peppers.
This is a raw vegan food recipe which is also vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free.
4 cloves garlic
2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger, or galangal
3 tablespoons lime juice
2 teaspoons cold pressed olive oil, or hemp or flax oil
1 teaspoon curry powder
1 medium tomato
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
Bell pepper, diced, optional
Cherry tomatoes, chopped, optional
Mushrooms, thinly sliced, optional
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
Open the coconut and drain the water into a blender. Scrape out the meat, and add to the blender.
Add garlic, ginger or galangal, lime juice, oil, curry powder, tomato, salt, and chile. Blend until smooth and creamy. Adjust seasonings to taste.
Add cilantro and pulse until cilantro is finely minced.
Pour into serving containers and add any chopped veggies you like: bell pepper, tomatoes, and thinly sliced mushrooms work well.
This raw coconut soup works well after it's had a chance to chill in the fridge for a couple of hours to allow the flavors to set. It'll need a good stirring before serving, however, as the oils and coconut water will tend to separate.
Enjoy your raw food Thai coconut soup. Yum!
