THAI COCONUT HOT AND SOUR SOUP

there are few things more luxurious to me then a night-in with nothing to do and a whole lot of thai take out. i live in thai town so i’m surrounded by amazing (and inexpensive!) thai restaurants which means i almost never try and re-create the dishes on my own because i know they just won’t compare. but, ivan and i made an exception for this soup and we didn’t regret it. based off of tom yum soup this one is creamy, spicy with the perfect balance of citrus. served with a pile of cilantro on top and a big spoonful of coconut sticky rice, it was perfect! – joanie

what you’ll need:
• 2 13 oz cans light coconut milk
• 1 32oz box of low sodium chicken broth
• 2 shallots thinly sliced
• 3 limes squeezed
•  1/2 a pound organic chicken breast tenders/cutlets (i find the small cuts to be more tender!)
• 2 cups mushrooms washed and sliced
• 3 teaspoons coconut sugar
• 1 bunch fresh cilantro
• 1 red jalapeño pepper thinly sliced (keep the seeds if you like it hot)
• 1 tablespoon fish sauce
• 2 teaspoons sea salt
• 3 stalks lemongrass peeled and chopped in half

also, we made this coconut sticky rice to serve along side and followed the recipe exactly.
