Asian Cocos Soup

So we’re back in Zurich. We had an amazing time in beautiful Stockholm. We took hundreds of pictures, had a lot of coffees (it was freezing – so good excuse to sit down in a lot of coffee shops), have seen elks, reindeers, wolves etc and did a lot of shopping. We arrived yesterday night and as the fridge was pretty empty did we go shopping. I’ve decided to make an asian cocos-milk soup. It’s absolutely delicious. Patrik loved the Hot-Dogs that u get at every corner in Stockholm – so he made some Hot Dogs. 🙂 We’re editing our pics and I’m already looking forward to sharing them with you. But for now – here’s the recipe for the delicious soup – as I don’t like meat did I do it with shrimps – use whatever u like. Enjoy!

Asian Cocos Soup

Ingredients for two:

  • 1 green onion
  • 50gr brown mushrooms
  • 1 lime
  • 1 tblsp. oliveoil
  • 1 carrot
  • 2dl bouillon (vegetable)
  • 2.5dl cocos-milk
  • 300g chicken or 6 shrimps
  • Sojasauce

How to do it:

  1. Chop the green onion fine and lay some of the green beside (you’ll need it for the decoration). Slit the mushrooms and squeeze the lime.
  2. Briefly saute the green onions in oil and add the mushrooms. Grate the carotts directly in the pan and sweat it for about a minute. Deglaze it with the bouillon and cocos-milk. Boil up.
  3. Reduce the heat, add the chicken or shrimps. Simmer for ca. 10 min. (covered). Season to taste with lime juice and sojasauce. Garnish with the greens and ready to serve. Enjoy!
