READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Normaone

Anything with coconut and lime just takes me right back to the tropics. I love this soup. It's actually a Thai recipe and is very easy and quick create. Plus, I usually have these ingredients on hand anyway, so it is also inexpensive. Enjoy.

What a quick and easy recipe!
I love anything with curry and a great soup. There are times when a recipe state it's a quick one and end up being one that twice the stated time.
One thing that I always do prior to preparing a new recipe is to read all the previous reviews. I followed quite a few suggestions by other reviewers. I increased the curry to 1 tablespoon, added 2 tablespoons of fish sauce, 1 tablespoon of garlic and 1/2 tablespoon of red pepper.
It was so good that my only regret was not making extra!
I will be making this recipe quite often!
