Thai Coconut Soup

Sweet and spicy are always on my list for food combinations. I crave Thai takeout, but I live out in the country and nothing is close. This will fill the void until a trip into town. This soup was assembled in 5-10 min and is full of flavors. Don’t worry if you don’t have all of the ingredients; I will give simple options.
