I’m not much of a recipe follower and most definitely not a recipe writer. I cook instinctively, making things up as I go along. I learned from my mother who was an amazing cook but she rarely followed a recipe. Culinary school presented a challenge since they’re not huge fans of winging it. Following recipes was hands down the most stressful part of my time at Natural Gourmet.
I’ve come to realize that my Facebook and Instagram pictures of meals I’ve prepared up are super annoying. Mostly because I’m told repeatedly. I never include recipes. Because I don’t have them. I don’t post much on this blog for that very same reason. Mind you, one of the main purposes of this blog is to post recipes that make it easier to cook health-supportive meals. It’s a problem I need to overcome so here I am.
After being asked a bunch of times yesterday for a recipe, I’ve thrown together this not so fancy or eloquent post. I’ll link out to health related information once I get this up. I just need to get this up!
Here’s the recipe for the coconut Thai soup I made last night. Please tweak it as you see fit. And since I don’t measure much, go light with the salt and taste as you go keeping in mind that the longer it cooks, the taste of the salt intensifies.
Note: I made homemade chicken broth yesterday with a small D’Artagnan organic chicken. You can use store-bought organic chicken or vegetable broth. Both work. I’ll post chicken and vegetable stock recipes at some point (hopefully!).
PS: Sorry I don’t have more photos. I’ll add them next time I make this dish.
