Recipe by Kim127

This recipe comes from an issue of Cooking Light. A co-worker came in several times and heated up this wonderful scented soup. He finally brought the recipe in and it is just so tasty. The lime juice gives it a little tang, the coconut milk and cilantro give it a light and fresh taste, and the shrimp and squash make it filling. Chicken or firm water-packed tofu can be used in place of the shrimp.

So good!! I broiled some pressed and cubes tofu and used veggie broth to make this soup vegan. My hubby's loved it! I did too!
