Keep some on hand! This soup freezes well, so make a big batch. That way you’ll always have some on hand for a delicious, quick lunch – or for when you feel a cold coming on.
Switch it up! If coconut’s not your thing, swap in heavy whipping cream instead. Not a fan of cilantro? No worries. Fresh flat-leaf parsley is a perfect pinch hitter. Add even more variety by playing around with other flavored butters.
