"I had a wee bit of this, a wee bit of that and this is the soup. I was going to serve this with a grilled cheese sandwich and then thought to use them as croutons. Feel free to use your own croutons."

Very good soup which we changed slightly by using chicken broth and skipped the croutons but served with bread and swiss cheese. I used coconut milk whipping cream which was wonderful in this soup. Thanks for sharing!

I had some fresh dill on hand and used it in addition to all the other ingredients. I also used the coconut milk option which I loved and opted for grilled cheese sandwiches on the side. Thank you Luvcookn for a nice winter meal!

What a delicious soup! I've never tried coconut milk on a "non Thai" recipe. I loved it! Needless to say, the grilled cheese croutons were a SUPER HIT.And the dill....yummmm!!!

May 27 /23 Had some lovely bok choy needing to be used, made for another terrific repeat for this awesome soup. Fresh ferny dill from the garden and this time all coconut milk put it right over the top! Just now printed a new copy for my recipe file, I'll be making this again very soon. Have to add it freezes beautifully!
