      [Webinar] Appliantology Workshop   11/09/2017

      Information is the name of the game in the appliance repair trade today. Appliantology is a powerful information tool for the professional appliance repair technician. But just like with any of the more capable tools in your tool bag, many of the more powerful features are hidden from you unless you "read the manual." Ugh! Who wants to do that? Well, this is one time when you don't have to! In this webinar, Team Samurai will personally walk you through the site and show you many of the useful and powerful features that even long-time users probably never knew existed.

Coconut Curry Vegetable Soup

Mrs. Samurai

2,248 views

This is a yummy soup that can be either made vegetarian or with chicken. Delish either way! Don't let the long list of ingredients worry you - as with any of my recipes, it is easy to make. Scoop some cooked rice into each bowl if desired to really round out the meal.

Ingredients

  • 2 T. coconut oil or butter
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 stalks celery, chopped
  • 2-3 carrots, diced
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced, divided
  • 1 T. fresh ginger, minced (The Ginger People company makes a nice jarred minced ginger that's a great time saver)
  • 1 medium zucchini, diced
  • 2 T. sweet curry powder
  • 1 tsp. ground coriander
  • 2 tsp. ground cumin
  • dash cayenne powder
  • 1 10-oz. bag frozen peas
  • 1-2 cans chick peas/garbanzo beans (depending on how "beany" you like it), rinsed and drained OR about 2 cups or so of cooked, diced chicken
  • 1 quart broth (vegetable or chicken)
  • 1 can coconut milk (look for this in the Asian/Thai section of the store)
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 bunch cilantro, chopped
  • 3-4 scallions, sliced, optional
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • cooked rice (optional)

Directions

In a soup pot, saute onion, celery, and carrots in the oil with about 1/2 tsp. of salt until a little soft, about 5 minutes. Add ginger and half of the garlic, cook for about 30 seconds. Add spices and zucchini, then cook for a minute or two.

Add the frozen peas, beans or chicken, broth, and coconut milk. Bring to a boil, then simmer gently for 20-30 minutes (or less, if you're in a hurry!).

Stir in the lemon juice and some of the cilantro and/or scallions, taste to adjust seasonings. Offer extra cilantro and/or scallions for toppings, as well as cooked rice if desired. A dollop of sour cream or plain yogurt wouldn't be out of place here, either.

I love anything with cilantro. Sounds yummy but what, no dollop of mayo? Lol
