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.
Looking for more easy AIP recipes?
I know diet change can feel overwhelming. I started the autoimmune protocol at a time when only four other people were writing about it, and over the years, I’ve striven to give you the resources I wish I’d had when I got started. Not just recipes, but ways to implement them. My first ebook 28 Days of AIP is a meal plan that will help you get going (or get back on the wagon) with as little fuss as possible. With a variety of simple, delicious recipes, plenty of leftovers so you don’t spend all your free time in the kitchen, and shopping lists ready to go, all you have to do is follow the plan, then sit down and enjoy your meal! It’s available as a digital download for $9.99.
