  1. Lauren, I love your recipes and your dedication to our health. I am disappointed however that you endorsed that coconut milk brand as it contains guar gum (even after saying it is additive free in the product description on the website!). Much better for people with sensitive guts is the Natural Value coconut milk which is specifically formulated as additive free. I will try this soup, but definitely with the Natural Value brand c milk. Thank you, Jennifer

    • I appreciate your thoughtful comment Jennifer, and I also think Natural Value is a great option for those who are sensitive or on a protocol such as SCD or GAPS. I tolerate the small amount of guar gum in this brand, and I find that it is much more creamier than Natural Value. It’s certainly a matter of personal taste and tolerance.

  2. Hi Lauren, this soup looks easy and yummy. Can I use regular curry powder or is the paste necessary for this recipe’s success? Also I would rather use yellow curry but I guess that is just a matter of taste.

    Thank you!

  3. This was delicious! Just the right spice – not to hot but flavorful – yum yum, and really love the only ten minutes which is true! Fabulous recipe, thanks! One question, is it necessary to use the full fat coconut milk.? Was wanting to try the reduced fat content one…what do you think?

  4. Oh my goodness. This was so fast, super easy and quite delicious! I happen to always have these ingredients on hand, and see myself making this recipe on rushed days. Or on days I don’t feel like doing a lot of dishes. I made it as-is and it was great. I did half the recipe, as it was just for me, and it still made a huge single serving. My guy had to eat the last few spoonfuls, as I was just too full and he also liked it.

    I may add lemongrass and chunked avocado next time. (I am a big believer avo should be on everything, as it is the most perfect food!) Great recipe, Lauren.
