The Saturday Simmer: Soup recipes made with coconut milk

Black bean soup with coconut and cilantro, from Apron Strings (via Soup Chick).

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.

These coconut milk-based soup recipes caught my eye this week:

Black bean soup with coconut and cilantro, from Apron Strings

Ginger coconut milk soup, from 101 Cookbooks

Carrot coconut soup, from Shutterbean

Creamy curried cauliflower soup, from The Kitchn

Indian-spiced slow cooker red lentil soup with spinach and coconut milk, from Kalyn's Kitchen

Coconut curry butternut squash soup, from Eclectic Recipes

Cold sorrel and coconut milk soup, from Herbivoracious

Coconut milk mussel soup, from La Tartine Gourmande

Tom kah gai (Thai coconut galangal chicken soup), from She Simmers

Coconut milk soup with wild salmon and kale, from Healthy Green Kitchen

Which will you try first? What intrigues you? Please leave feedback on the original recipe post, and let us know if you've made or adapted any of these recipes. See you next Saturday, and every Saturday, with more soups, stews and chili.

MMM, lentils & spinach & garam masala--I need the Indian-spiced slow cooker red lentil soup! I've made lentil & kale soup, so this one should be just as easy & satisfying.
