ISO: Coconut Soup

I was in an Indian restaurant over the weekend and had coconut soup. It was so delicious. It was served hot and basically tasted like I was drinking liquid coconut. Does anyone have a recipe for this? Is it as easy to make as I am thinking it is?

Not that but I have a red lentil curry soup that has coconut milk and thai curry in it that is TDF. Also a lentil mulligatawny with coconut milk. It is a great ingredient!

Yes I have numerous recipes where coconut milk is an ingredient, but this was different. It was the main, if not the only ingredient. I am curious if there was anything else in this other than the milk and flesh.

GB, I know you are quite capable of googling but look at some of these here

The problem I'm running into is no actual coconut in the soup!

Too bad none of them are what GB is looking for

GB, was it:

spicy
cilantro
lime
lemongrass
kaffir lime leaves
ginger
fish sauce

Any of those where the ingredient could have been strained out before serving?

Was it the kind of coconut milk you buy in the can? Was it obviously fresh grated coconut or the kind you can buy frozen?

Check this out GB. I kept thinking "Thai" and I switched my thinking to Indian.

Or it could be as easy as you think it is GB -

I have so very little of it (because my daughter hogged it all ), but it basically just tasted like coconut without anything else. There was no kick from any spices or herbs that I could detect.

I guess I was just thinking it had to have something more in it then just coconut milk and flesh, but maybe it didn't afterall.

The 2 coconut soup recipes are Thai, but I have bought their products and prepared a few recipes from their cookbook with good results, years ago. If the recipe is not close to the one you recall, you can buy (or order on line - for about $3.50), the coconut soup base.

Uh-Oh. I might order a few of their noodles.

GB, I think you should go back to that restaurant and become very friendly with the waiter...bet he could give you some ideas of the ingredients. Sometimes they go back in the kitchen and just ask.

I've asked before and although I never got a 'recipe', just knowing the ingredients has helped alot.
