Jakey Bakey's Note:
A flavorful soup with curry powder and coconut milk, this recipe comes from The New England Soup Factory Cookbook (wish I could take credit for it, but I can't!). Although the original recipe calls for vegetable stock (this is a vegetarian soup), I generally use chicken stock because I think it gives it a richer flavor. Adjust spiciness and sweetness by varying amount of hot pepper flakes and honey accordingly. Make sure you use a good quality canned coconut milk -- in my experience, powdered coconut milk isn't a good substitute. I love this as a soup, but it's also great as a sauce/gravy over white rice on its own. Yummy -- and I generally am not fond of really spicy foods. But this yummy and packs just enough of a kick!
