Gluten Free Five Minute Creamy Thai Soup Recipe

by Carol Kicinski on December 6, 2011

Gluten Free Recipes | Dairy Free Recipes | Creamy Thai Soup It may not be as cold here in Florida as it is in other parts of the world but when the temps drop anywhere below 74 degrees we bundle up. It may seem balmy to others but we get chilled easily here what with our thin, thin blood. (If only my thighs were as thin as my blood!)

Whether it is 68 degrees or 13 below, soup is always a great way to warm up. This super allergy friendly – gluten free, dairy free, nut free, egg free with options for soy free and vegan – is ready in about 90 seconds longer than it takes to heat up canned soup and is rich with lovely Thai flavors thanks to ginger, garlic, Sunbutter and coconut milk. Everything in this soup is stuff I keep in my pantry or fridge so it can be made without a trip to the store – another plus if it is just too cold to go back out again. A little tip – store your ginger in the freezer, it stays fresh forever and you can grate it while it is still frozen.

Since this soup also tastes great if it cools off a bit, it makes great shooters for cocktail parties – just pour into shot glasses, maybe garnish with a sliver of lime and serve.

Regardless of whether the weather outside is frightful or delightful, this delicious, slightly exotic soup will warm your bones and your soul.

    Yum Yum Yum! We love Thai foods in this house. I wonder if I could just use salt, as we don’t do soy sauce nor Braggs (it’s still made from soy, and there is serious speculation about how it’s made and that it contains poisonous by products http://theashbulletin.blogspot.com/2011/02/danger-of-bragg-liquid-aminos.html) I will try this adding a Tablespoon organic beef broth combined with a teaspoon or so of sea salt. Also do you use canned coconut milk or something like So Delicious brand? Thank you for the wonderful recipes! Recently gluten free household and websites like yours have been a treasure for us with cooking!

      You can leave it out and just add some salt. Thanks, I will check into that article. I use canned coconut milk because I can store it in my pantry but you can use any kind you like. Thank YOU!

        You can also try Coconut Aminos – it’s what I use in place of soy sauce. I believe the brand name is Coconut Secrets.

    This sounds and looks fantastic – my son is allergic to peanut so I have Sunbutter in my pantry too. Thanks!

    I love Thai-inspired soups. Something about the spice and the coconut seems to make the world a happier, warmer place. It looks like such a simple recipe too, and much better than eating from a can.

    • http://www.simplygluten-free.com Carol Kicinski

      Thanks and I agree, homemade is sooo much better than opening a can, especially when it is almost as easy!

  • http://www.cookitallergyfree.com/blog Kim (Cook It Allergy Free)

    This is so my kind of soup. It looks amazing and I just love all of the flavors you have going on in here! And, although most of the year we are pretty dang warm around here in AZ, the winters are freezing! It has been in the high 20′s at night. I have had to tuck all of my vegetable plants in at night under layers of frost blankets to keep them from freezing. Poor Babies! ;)

    • http://www.simplygluten-free.com Carol Kicinski

      Woah! I would freeze my butt off in that kind of cold! Not that that would be a bad thing…
