Red Curry and Coconut Chicken Soup

Published on January 13, 2013

Coconut oil made for medium to high heat is tasteless and one of the best oils you can use in cooking. When oils are heated, they can become carcenogenic. Coconut oil does not do this. A good test is to use it for heating tortillas. It’s very nice to use because it’s not as greasy as olive oil.

Red Curry and Coconut Chicken Soup



Heat oil and sauté onions and garlic on medium heat for five minutes. Add curry paste and cook 1 minute. Add chicken stock, cayenne pepper, carrots and rice, loosely cover and simmer on low until carrots and rice are tender, about 40 minutes. Add kale, chicken and lemon juice and simmer 5 minutes more. Stir in coconut milk.

*Golden Star is coconut and water and does not have gar gum in it. And Traders Joes has a light canned coconut that is just coconut and water.
