Thai Soup

Yum Yum! This is one of my favorites too. Heck, they all are or I would not be putting them on here, hahaha. So, this is a very mild, yet very flavorful and delicious soup that is SUPER easy to make.. you could very easily add some heat to this soup as well to spice it up! Once again, this recipe has a lot of wiggle room for variation - so add whatever you think will be good! MMM, I want some right now!!


1 onion chopped
1 can bamboo shoots - drained
1 can water chestnuts – drained
1 pkg baby bella mushrooms cleaned and sliced
Cilantro chopped (about 1/2 cup)
Green onion – chopped (about 1/2 cup)
1 pkg (4) precooked Chicken sausage – chopped into bite size pieces (I use garlic and herb flavor)
1 large can chicken broth
1 can coconut milk
1 pkg frozen spinach – thawed and drained
1 TBLS vegetable oil or olive oil

Sweat onion and mushrooms in large dutch oven or soup pot in oil until soft. Do not caramelize. Add sausage and cook about 5 minutes. Add broth, bamboo shoots, water chestnuts, cilantro, spinach and cook on low heat until heated through (you can add water or more broth if needed). Remove from heat, add more chopped fresh cilantro, chopped green onions and coconut milk. Stir and serve. ** shrimp can also be added to this recipe. Enjoy!
