A Thai coconut carrot soup may not be a staple in your diet but it’s probably similar to other types of creamy vegetable soups you’ve had throughout your life. Whether your mother made them from scratch or you had them in heavily processed canned form, we all grew up with soups like cream of tomato, potato, broccoli, etc.
You can easily make a Thai version of these soups by using coconut milk in place of cow’s milk and experimenting with different combos of salty, sweet and sour seasonings. This Thai coconut carrot soup recipe is a great example.
For me, it’s all about finding that perfect consistency of carrots, creamy rich coconut milk and chicken broth with Thai-infused herbs. Add a little more broth for a thinner consistency or little less and a tad more coconut milk or even coconut cream for a thicker more coconut-rich flavor. I prefer the latter mixed with a little lime juice, a dash of fish sauce, a pinch of chile powder and some chopped Thai basil.
