Thai Coconut Noodle Veg Soup ~ Gluten Free, Vegan Asian Noodle Soup with Vegetables

As the readers of this blog would know by now, we are huge fans of soup. While we have our personal favourites, we also love to experiment quite a bit when it comes to soups. What better time to taste a new soup than an indulgent chilly weekend, right ? This Thai inspired Coconut Noodle soup filled with veggies was a hit at home considering we are not fans of coconut milk at all. I used the light coconut milk (2nd extract) for this soup, but if you like you could use a mix of 1st and 2nd extract or even blend coconut cream + 2nd extract to make this soup.

The place where we live doesn’t have any defined “Winter” weather but we enjoy the slight dip in the mercury running from Mid-Nov to mid-jan . If you are a soup lover like us, why don’t you try the Vegan + GF yet creamy Broccoli Almond Soup

Warming spices / aromatics like Ginger and Crushed Black pepper add to the oomph of this broth. This can be had as a soup or a whole meal by itself. I have used my homemade veg stock to add heaps of flavour into this , but you can use plain filtered water too. Addition of noodles is optional, but as we had this as a complete meal WITH some veg momos, noodles added a lot of meatiness to make the entire meal hearty and healthy.  Let’s get to the recipe now.
