This is seriously the easiest thai coconut soup recipe you will ever find online, especially if you don’t have specific thai soup ingredients such as fresh lemongrass, fish sauce or chili paste.

As a busy mom I have to meal plan – or the whole family ends up eating mac n cheese 2 days in a row!

Even with meal planning, however there are times when I need a healthy meal I can whip up quickly.

Recently I discovered Kevin’s Natural Foods sauces which are non-gmo verified, paleo and keto.  They also contain ZERO preservatives and are dairy-free, soy-free and gluten-free.

Healthy, real food ingredients are a big deal for both myself and my clients. I usually don’t like using pre-made sauces because they are full of preservatives, sugar, etc.

One evening I was craving thai soup. In particular, Tom Kha Gai. However I didn’t have time to run to the store for the usual ingredients.

I found the Thai Coconut Sauce from Kevin’s Natural Foods though, so I attempted the simplest soup I have ever made (aside from my easy tortilla soup).

It doesn’t even require a blender, and it came together in less than 20 minutes.

My thai coconut soup is Paleo, Keto and dairy-free, and contains no refined sugar, soy or gluten. It can easily be a plant-based, vegan/vegetarian soup by using vegetable stock and tofu as the protein.

Pro Tip: I highly recommend doubling the recipe. The leftovers the next day give the flavors time to further meld together – and it’s even more mouth watering.

Note – If you don’t have Kevin’s Natural Food Thai Coconut Sauce, you can add fresh lemongrass, fish sauce, sugar and chili paste to taste.

Coconut milk can aid in weight loss, since it is rich in short and medium chain triglycerides that are considered to be healthy fats.

It can also help reduce joint pain and inflammation, which people suffering from autoimmune inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus arthritis do by substituting sugar for coconut milk as a sweetener

A balanced gut is so important for health and weight loss and coconut milk contains Zinc, a mineral that many of us are deficient in, that aids in the renewal of the cells that line the intestinal wall. This can help prevent the translocation of harmful bacteria from the intestinal lumen into the blood stream (leaky gut) and reduce diarrhea.
