I wanted to make my favorite Thai soup because I have been craving it. If you want, you can decrease the coconut milk to one can – which will decrease the fat – and just add more vegetable stock. If you want more vegetables in this soup, add some sliced mushrooms and/or carrots. To add more protein and fiber, a can of beans wouldn't hurt or some jasmine rice or quinoa – definitely toasted. Get creative, add what you like, the base is so tasty anything would work. I served this soup warm, but it would also be delicious chilled.
