Simple Vegetarian Tom Kha Soup

I’ve always been a fan of coconut. Growing up in India I used to relish slurping coconut water from a young coconut sliced open in font of me by a machete yielding vendor.

Coconut Curry with Whatever Veggie You Have

What a summer it’s shaping out to be. Ever since I’ve moved to the lake, I’ve had more family and friends visit me than when I lived in one of the largest cities in the United States! It’s crazy but amazing. Not only do I have more fur-less friends coming by – but I’ve quite a few furry ones too. Most recent visitors to my porch are these adorable little squirrels.

Guess I really nailed the squirrel meal!

This recipe (or some variation of it) is my go to when I want to serve a dinner that is special yet easy to make. What I love about it is how easy it is to vary depending on what I happen to have in my fridge. I’ve made this with sweet potato, carrots & broccoli, peas, mixed veggies. It always turns out great. I love eating it with brown rice to add a little nutty flavor to the whole dish.
