Chardonnay

Find a quality, oaked Chardonnay and you can't go wrong. The butteriness will match perfectly with the creamy coconut and the citrus will cut straight through. Perfect for a rainy evening curled up on the couch!

Tips + Tricks

- Ensure the heat doesn't get too high once the coconut milk is in or the milk can split.
- The thickness of the soup will depend on how much water you drain off. Drain a bit more than half off if you want a thicker soup and keep a bit more if you want a thinner soup (not recommended though as this can dilute flavors).

Mama's Wisdom

This healthy soup offers vitamin A, vitamin B6 (has a key role in sleep, appetite, and moods), calcium, phosphorus, potassium (these minerals are good for many systems including nervous and skeletal), and fiber (good for digestion). 'Light' coconut cream, is lower is saturated (bad) fats. Inspect stock labels for MSG, as it can be an allergen for some people.
