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.
