Asparagus soup with mint pistou, from More Than Burnt Toast

Asparagus soup with mint pistou, from More Than Burnt Toast (on Soup Chick).

A bowl of this Thai vegetable soup from Kahakai Kitchen. Filled with vegetables and the fragrance of lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, cilantro and Thai basil, this vegan and gluten-free stew gets its creaminess from coconut milk.
