This soup is a regular around our place. I actually double up the recipe and pour into canning jars for keeping. And we just love having a bowl of soup anytime the feeling hits. This Thai inspired soup is simply amazing, you may wish to prep this recipe on the weekend, so you have it ready for the week.

Don't let the line up of ingredients scare you, take 10 minutes to place all ingredients on your prep table, and just work through it. Once it's in your pot, just let it simmer. I chose this recipe for you as I really wanted you to feel how lovely these flavours are together. Tomato, coconut milk and peanut, together with ginger and the remaining ingredients, it's amazing!

Remember my rule of squishing the San Marzano whole canned tomatoes through your fingers as you add them to the recipes.

Serve with bread and butter, yum!

For gluten free, this recipe is ideal and 100% gluten free. The Knorr gel package states they are gluten free.

For vegetarian, this recipe is ideal and only requires you to use vegetable stock. Knorr gel packs also come in vegetarian.
