Thai Coconut Soup

Thai Coconut Soup | Crumbs and ChaosThis Thai Coconut Soup is super easy and perfect for a cold winter’s day!

I’m truly glad that it’s the start of a new week.  Because last week was one of those weeks – the kind where the dishwasher has run every load on sani-rinse and you’re doling out extra Vitamin C like it’s candy.  It was hard to come home from vacation and then have all the kids laid out in the living room like it’s an infirmary just a few days later.  Thankfully, they’re on the mend. Today I’m sharing one of my favorite things to make when I need a little comfort.  This Thai Coconut Soup is simple to make and comes together in no time at all.

I usually keep most of these things in the pantry or fridge/freezer, so making this soup whenever I feel like it is pretty easy.  I’ve made it so many times myself that I could probably make it without the recipe.  I absolutely adore all of these flavors together – the ginger, coconut milk, lime, cilantro – it’s amazing and super comforting!  Adding the sriracha is optional, but totally recommended ;)
