I eat miso and kelp noodles almost everyday. Yesterday I decided to mix it up a little and this is the result. It reminds me of tom kha. You can vary the vegetables and noodles to your taste, I just used what I had on hand.

I've been hearing all the hype about this fruit and was delighted to see that my Asian market has started to carry it frozen. They had it shelled in packages and the whole fruit. I've since become addicted to it. I've tried the smoothie recipes adding banana and fruit to it, but to me it dilutes the sweet custardy texture and just tastes like I added some garlic to my smoothie - personally would personally rather eat it by itself. However, it does have the garlicy sweet flavor to it, so I did a search for savory recipes and came up short. I created this recipe by thinking that with the sweet garlic flavor, all it needed was a dash of sour and a little savory to make a soup. I don't think the coconut is necessary, but I had one that needed to be used.
This quick easy Summer cooler is like “liquid guacamole” that kicked me into a pleasure-induced coma that had me “coat-checking” my teeth and dreaming up a recipe for a “taco in a glass”. I have deliberately kept this soup simple. It is deceptively rich – with a subtle flavor that dances across the palate before leaving a lasting impression. Have a few tastes before you add more pizzazz. Also, allow for some chilling time to allow the flavors to infuse. Traditional gazpacho is made with cold water with purists serving it at room temperature. However, I find that avocados can get a bit warm after being blended; and I prefer to enjoy this soup chilled. I served this soup as a main meal garnished with extra avocado, tomato, cilantro, and green onions. If you serve it with all the toppings in soup bowls – this recipe serves about 4 – 6 people. But, those of you who are less indulgent avocado connoisseurs might find that “a little goes a long way”. If this is the case, you can stretch this recipe to 8 people and serve it in small ramekins or glasses for an appetizer. Alternatively, the base is flavorful enough to stand alone. It has a smooth, creamy texture and flavor and is delicious served as a tiny taster in shot glasses. You could jazz this up with a dash of Tabasco and a sprig of cilantro. Yummo! This recipe is a wonderful allergy-friendly dish for something different on a hot Summer’s day, gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, egg-free and soy-free. Thankfully – not taste free!
This is a creamy and flavorful - yet still nice and light - thai soup made from carrot, red peppers and cashew. The version here is relatively mild but you can amp up the flavor a bit by adding more ginger, cilantro, lemongrass or chili peppers.
