I served this lovely & flavorful soup along side a pasta salad for a light & satisfying dinner meal. The advance prep & crockpot cook method make it ideal for a dinner party starter to serve w/crusty garlic bread. The use of coconut milk in a soup was new for me & I esp liked learning how well it works. The prep was a bit fuzzy in a cpl of spots, but the outcome was great & loved by both of us! This was a PAC choice & a happy 1 indeed! Pls see my rating system. This is a very worthy 4 stars & will be repeated for a dinner party soon. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us Mommie. HITYL?
