This is by far my most favourite soup to make. It is comforting, warm, delicious and what I think Autumn tastes like. Not only is it my favourite because of the taste, but it is CRAZY easy, and it has such a small amount of ingredients that it won’t break the bank!
I’m a huge fan of meal prepping and making sure I have a ton of meals in the freezer when I don’t have energy to cook, and this soup holds in the freezer for a good 3 months or so.
I have major love for my slow cooker. The greatest thing about using a slow cooker is that you don’t have to make everything pretty. You literally just cut everything up, and chuck it into the slow cooker and let it do its thaaang.
I’m sorry, but if those aren’t good excuses to bring out that slow cooker, then you obviously don’t have one.. and you should get one… right now.
For the Coconut Milk, I try to get one with at least 85% Coconut Extract and the rest made up of water. I use real Thai Coconut Milk found in the Asian section at most grocery stores.
It’s high in fat, but meh, we’re making soup, and the rest of it is all wonderfully healthy.
Also, you’re going to need to use a LOT of spices because you’re making such a big batch. It’s all good! Just make sure you have enough 🙂
Alright, enough chit chat. Let’s dig in!
