Paleo & Whole 30 Coconut Red Thai Curry Chicken Soup

3 Sep

I’m back!  It has been a while.  Working full time, planning a wedding, buying a new house, moving, and breaking your leg = serious lack of recipe creation.  Tonight I successfully recreated a soup that I fell in love with at a restaurant near work.  I realize the current 80-something degree humid weather doesn’t make someone go “I want soup!” but I really love this flavor.  Plus I’m still on crutches.  I would have waited even longer to attempt cooking, but working from a phone and computer day in and out and doing basically nothing else is making me stir crazy.  Hey, don’t break a leg!  It isn’t fun.  Perhaps you will wait until the autumn chill is in the air, but you must try this recipe!
