The recipe makes four servings.  Here is the nutritional information:

The actual recipe has more sodium in it, because Nutrition Data does not have the statistics for the Coconut Broth in their database.  However, the soup still packs 6 grams of fiber, 8 grams of protein, 491% of your Vitamin A requirement, and 129% of your Vitamin C requirement! WOW!

 

I enjoyed my cup of soup with crackers and cheese.

Crackers are always a perfect complement to a warm bowl of tasty soup!

    Great way to add to a pre-made soup!
    I made a carrot soup for dinner once and coincidentally caught a stomach flu shortly afterward. By association, I’ve never been able to tolerate carrot soup since. Oh well.

    I love all soups, but I think split pea is my favorite. I used to eat Cambpell’s split pea soup all the time. Homemade is definitely better. I do like Healthy Choice clam chowder too.

  • Olga April 14, 2009, 8:38 am

    I LOVE french onion soup as well, and since discovering New England clam chowder, I can’t get enough of it!

    Awesome recipe!

  • runsarah April 14, 2009, 8:39 am

    That looks awesome, I have to try it! Soup recipes look daunting to me as they often involve so many ingredients. My favourite is minestrone soup.

  • Amelia (AC/DC: Highways to Health) April 14, 2009, 8:42 am

    Your soup and crackers looks delish! My favorite soup is tomato – with a lot of Tabasco sauce or broccoli cheese.

  • Life Coach Jen April 14, 2009, 8:43 am

    Ooh, my favorite soup is sweet potato and bean – it calls for chickpeas but I throw in whatever bean I have and sometimes add collards or kale. Super easy and healthy and delicious!

  • Niki April 14, 2009, 8:44 am

    Yum! Sounds great!! My all time favorite soup is tomato!!

  • peanutbutterandjuli April 14, 2009, 8:47 am

    FRENCH ONION! Definitely the best!

  • Mrs. LC April 14, 2009, 8:47 am

    Impressive! That soup sounds great (and perfect for today’s rainy day). šŸ™‚

    I love a good black bean or lentil soup.

  • Brandi April 14, 2009, 8:49 am

    that sounds great! I’ve never seen that broth before.

    My favorite soup would a tie between good old tomato and french onion.

  • iowagirleats April 14, 2009, 8:49 am

    My fave is a creamy potato pepper jack cheese soup I had the other – it was INCREDIBLE!!

  • Matt April 14, 2009, 8:49 am

    My favorite soup is the black bean from Panera.

  • Meghann April 14, 2009, 8:50 am

    Did you find the Thai Coconut Curry at Publix? I will have to look for it on my next trip, it sounds great šŸ™‚

  • Moran April 14, 2009, 8:50 am

    Favourite? Beans soup (black+kidney+beans in tomato sauce) OR vegetable/chickenish-vegetable soup!

    I love black bean.

  • Lora April 14, 2009, 9:01 am

    french onion is the greatest, but being irish i love potato soup with bacon in it…omg. heaven.

  • Tami April 14, 2009, 9:13 am

    potato soup is my favorite.

  • Bec April 14, 2009, 9:39 am

    hot and sour soup from my favorite restaurant!

  • Dori April 14, 2009, 9:42 am

    My favorite is matzah ball! I always love it — although I am with you on French Onion, particularly the melted cheese.

  • K from ksgoodeats April 14, 2009, 9:52 am

    That sounds great! My favorite soup used to be broccoli cheddar but now I’m a plain minestrone girl – lots of hot sauce though!

  • MaryBe April 14, 2009, 9:58 am

    Plain old tomato soup!

  • Kelly April 14, 2009, 9:59 am

    Haha I made that exact soup last night and am eating for lunch right now. It’s really yummy!

  • TinaGirl April 14, 2009, 10:08 am

    We live in Chico which is where Sierra Nevada Brewery is. I love that place. They have the best Butternut squash soup in the world! I do love me a good grilled cheese sandwich with some creamy tomato basil or red pepper soup though. Thats my favorite rainy day soup.

  • Leanne April 14, 2009, 10:39 am

    Favorite soup is my Aunt’s Split Pea and Ham!

  • skinnyrunner.com April 14, 2009, 10:46 am

  • S.I.T.C. April 14, 2009, 10:50 am

    Hey Caitlin- where did you find the coconut thai curry broth? does any local grocery store probably carry is that a specialty item? thanks:)

  • Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point April 14, 2009, 10:50 am

    i found this broth at my regular grocery store, in the regular soup section. šŸ™‚

  • Missy April 14, 2009, 11:07 am

  • Susan April 14, 2009, 11:54 am

    I’m with Matt…black bean soup from Panera!

  • Oh She Glows April 14, 2009, 12:27 pm

    TOMATO soup all the day! I love it with crackers crunched on top. Mmmmm now im craving some!

  • Zesty Cook April 14, 2009, 12:28 pm

    I read the title and I got super excited! I love it. I really like carrot ginger soup as well and a new love for cream of tomato šŸ™‚

  • Anonymous April 14, 2009, 2:05 pm

    I love soup!
    I like mexican tortilla soup with tons of avocado, and the traditional vegetable soup šŸ™‚

  • Mica April 14, 2009, 2:53 pm

    Yum, looks great!

  • Lisa D. April 14, 2009, 3:13 pm

    I wonder if it would be good if you boiled the carrots directly in the broth. I just know veggies lose some of their vitamins when they cook and if you did it in broth then you would still get them! that soup sounds really good though! my fav is probably pasta e. fagoli with lots of parm on top!

  • Erin April 14, 2009, 4:16 pm

    It looks like it might be good served over some brown rice too, no?

  • TinaGirl April 14, 2009, 5:23 pm

    I made mine tonight with one carrot and two medium sized sweet potatoes! Yummy! Thanks for the recipe. I made some brown rice with a little of the broth too. I can’t wait for it to be ready!

  • Victoria April 14, 2009, 5:25 pm

    I really love lentil soup. And clam chowder!

  • Nutritious is Delicious April 14, 2009, 6:07 pm

    Love the soup! Yum! My favorite would have to be a chunky homemade veggie soup!

  • ChickPea April 14, 2009, 9:41 pm

    Yum, I’ll eat coconut in any form…including soup.

    Fave soup before turning veg was definitely clam chowder…now I am more of a butternut squash kinda girl.
