This Thai-inspired lemongrass soup with mushrooms and coconut is divine. An entire symphony of flavors, if you will, the mushrooms and carrots bring a hearty and grounding flavor to this soup, while the coconut milk is smooth and decadent. The ginger is warming and the fresh lime and cilantro keep this soup light and fresh. This Thai lemongrass soup is an easy one-pot soup and can be made as a quick weeknight soup! This soup is plant-based and grain-free; however, steamed rice or chicken would be an excellent addition if you would like!
This soup is neutral when it comes to practicing food combining. Meaning it would pair very well with either proteins or starches. An example of pairing this soup with a protein would be to add animal protein to the soup like chicken or shrimp, or you could add a plant-based protein like tofu to the soup. If you wanted to eat this soup with starches, you could add steamed grains like rice or quinoa or maybe enjoy a piece of sprouted bread with the soup! If you prefer to keep this Thai lemongrass soup neutral, enjoy this soup on its own or add more vegetables to it! Enjoy!
