The Saturday Simmer: Soup recipes made with coconut milk
For people who cannot eat dairy products, coconut milk can be a lifesaver. In soups like this unusual black bean soup with coconut and cilantro, from Apron Strings, coconut milk brings its creamy richness to balance the earthy texture of the beans. Many cuisines rely on coconut milk, including Thai, Indian, and Jamaican, so there's a lot to choose from when you're making soup.
