This is a fast recipe once you cracked those coconuts, and SO worth the effort. I take this soup to work and heat it gently on an electric coffee mug warmer, stirring every 5 minutes or so to keep a hot spot from developing. Or make it with warm water.

Recipe Directions

Blend all ingredients except for the last three. Then add the cilantro or parsley, and blend briefly, so it’s not entirely liquefied. Pour in a bowl. Add last two ingredients and mix well. Add more cayenne pepper if you desire the soup spicier.

This is a fast recipe once you cracked those coconuts, and SO worth the effort. I take this soup to work and heat it gently on an electric coffee mug warmer, stirring every 5 minutes or so to keep a hot spot from developing. Or make it with warm water. You can find Thai coconut (or young coconuts) at Whole Foods or for half the price at an Asian market. They look like little white round roofed huts. To open them, whack at the top with a cleaver or heavy butcher knife. Once you have a slit, turn it upside down to drain the juice. Complete cutting off the top and scrape out the coconut meat with a spoon or spatula. It is soft and jelly-like. You will LOVE this soup. It has a true gourmet flavor.

This is my first recipe to try from this website. I make coconut water kefir regularly and always looking for a way to use all that coconut meat. This was so easy and quick and delicious. I left some of mine thick to use as a sauce. Will try it with the kefired coconut water and meat next time to avoid the high sugar content. Thanks so much for posting!

sound delish...I'm definitely going to try this because I love Thai Coconut soup...coconut soup period! Coconuts are tricky but once you get to the point where you get the water out and you have to halve the coconut, I'll share with you all trick that I learned in Guatamala....tricky in the winter with snow or ice on the ground but try it....if you have a machete or cleaver (which is what I used) initially bang it into the coconut so that i holds firmly in place, then from a low level position (squatting a little) bang the coconut on the ground with the machete/cleaver held in place a couple of times (bang as hard as you can) and in a couple of hits it will crack open....easy peasy japaneasy!!!

I can't wait to try this. That is so true about the coconut. It can be intimidating to deal with but worth the effort. I love cilantro and that is great advice about the little warmer.

I'm excited for you to try it! I loved this soup so much that (before I figured out the tools needed to crack a coconut) I was outside in the winter with a bad knife, a mallet, and a screwdriver. :)
