I know it seems silly to post a recipe for soup on one of the hottest days of the year but I really do eat soup in the summer! This recipe can work all year long though! Feel free to vary the veg to your liking!


  • 1 tbsp. indian spice mix (check my spice category for the recipe)
  • 4 cups chicken broth- low sodium g.f
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 4-6 cups of vegetables( asparagus, garlic, onion, carrot, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, beans etc)
  • 1-2 tbsp. olive oil


  1. Sautee the garlic, onions and celery in the olive oil. Add in the rest of the veggies.
  2. Add in the broth and water, bring to a boil.
  3. Once the veggies are el dente, add in the coconut milk and spice. Salt and pepper if needed too.
  4. Reduce the heat and simmer for a bit.
  5. I like to puree part of the soup just to give it a thickened feel. You can puree the whole batch if you like too!
  6. Enjoy with a few crackers or a side salad!
  7. The soup itself is 2 points per 12 oz bowl. Enjoy! (Could be less depending on your coconut milk and olive oil usage!)
  8. Use vegetarian broth to make this vegetarian.
