This is my new favourite soup! I could eat this everyday. I make this with vegetable broth, and coconut milk. It makes this soup vegan friendly, gluten and dairy free. Since I've been eliminating dairy from my diet, this is a great treat for me. It tastes very creamy and delicious!
This was a real hit! I made it at home, loved it, and made it for a soup and salad potluck. It got raves and I got requests for the recipe from at least 4 people. Now I've been asked to make it again for this weekend. The changes I made were to use low sodium vegetable broth instead of chicken broth, omitted the salt, and used canned coconut milk instead of yogurt. The coconut milk gives it a great texture and wonderful flavor!
If you change the chicken broth to vegetable broth then this recipe can be called vegetarian.
