There are a few things in this soup that many people may not be familiar with, like coconut milk and lemon grass. Both of these ingredients provides a burst of flavor and freshness that you won’t find in an ordinary soup.
Tumeric is the main ingredient in curry powder and tumeric itself has some amazing health benefits. You can read more about the health benefits of tumeric here.
Make sure to cut off the ends of the lemon grass and peel away the tough outer layer with a sharp knife. Grate the lemon grass or chop it very fine with a sharp knife. If you have a few bigger pieces, you can let them simmer in the soup but toss them out when the soup is ready to serve.
Coconut milk can be found in the International food isle. On occasion it can be also found with the canned milk.
This is a great soup to use boneless chicken thighs because they really add a lot of flavor to the soup and shred similar to the chicken breast. Chicken thighs are typically much cheaper, making this soup easy on the budget.
