This Thai Coconut Soup is a staple at restaurants–you’ll find it on the menu as Tom Kha Gai. I’ve had it at every Thai place I’ve been to and each version is slightly different, usually in how spicy it is. I knew that if I could make it at home and control the spice level, it would be my all-time favorite soup. And I don’t even like the taste of coconut milk! But here, it adds a little something that pairs very well with the mushrooms and broth. It’s also a good way to sneak a little broccoli into your diet. (I’m always looking for ways to get broccoli past my husband.) This version is 100% autoimmune protocol-friendly, but you could add a splash of chili oil along with the lemon juice if you’re not on the AIP and want something with a more traditional punch.
