Have any of you tried the coconut chicken soup from Nourishing Traditions Cookbook? It’s quite spicy, isn’t it? When my children were little, they found this soup too strong tasting. So, even though my husband and I enjoyed it, I ended up never making it!

To please the kids’ taste buds, I developed this dairy-free cream of vegetable soup instead. It works well for those who find the taste of fresh ginger in soup too overpowering or who are less adventurous with food in general. 

Cream of Vegetable Soup Serving Suggestions

Need a heartier or chunky style soup that can serve as the main meal? Simply add pastured roast chicken once the soup is blended and ready to serve.

For young ones transitioning to solid foods, you may wish to blend the chicken into the soup along with the vegetables so that little to no chewing is needed.

Recipe Notes

Substitute 2 cups filtered water and 2 cups chicken stock if you are low on chicken stock!

Substitute unrefined avocado oil for the olive oil if desired.

Add chunks of pastured roast chicken to make the soup more hearty and to serve as the main meal rather than just an appetizer.

Note that the nutritional information does not include optional basmati rice and chicken.
