Full of fresh summer produce, this paleo vegan soup is perfect for summer! The recipe is inspired by a Finnish soup called kesakeitto, which is traditionally made with milk and cream. Coconut milk is used to recreate that delicious, creamy taste, making this a cross between kesakeitto and the Thai tom kha gai soup.
