I thought I’d throw one up for the paleo AND vegan/vegetarian crowd today. This soup is absolutely fantastic. It’s also pretty versatile in the sense that you can prepare it in a blender or on the stove top as well as serve it warm or cold. Great for winter and PERFECT for summer!
This is an extremely filling soup. Lo-carb, high-fat, with an option to add protein! If you want to thin it out, you could always add some bone broth or vegetable broth in lieu or addition to the coconut milk.
