Canned Soup Doesn't Have to Taste Canned

The other day, I was pondering how spoiled we’ve become by the ability to find nearly everything online. Like recipes.

Through the years, I’ve collected a ton, the old-school way, by clipping them from magazines and organizing them in folders.

Flipping through one, I found an easy, yummy soup recipe using…once again…canned tomato soup.

If you like Thai flavors, you’ll love this.

Dump soup in a pot. Add half a can of water and half coconut milk. Stir in a teaspoon of Thai green curry paste (or more) and warm through.

Garnish with several squeezes of lime juice, Siracha, and fresh cilantro.

Now here’s my own take: I added a couple of tablespoons of chunky peanut butter and some fresh, cooked shrimp. Fabulous!

Creamy. Spicy. Warming. And, fast!

Hope you like it.
