Coconut Chicken Soup

Toddler Treat: Coconut Chicken Soup
 
Soups take the chill off winter and tastes oh-so good when you have the sniffles. This recipe for chicken soup has full Thai flavor and is sure to be a hit with the whole family, even the pickiest toddler. If you have a baby in your household, scoop out a little soup and purée it in the blender. It will be a nice consistency for the baby.  
 
Thai Chicken Coconut Soup 
 
Ingredients: 
 
2 Tbsp. Olive oil 
1/2 - 1 tsp. Thai red curry paste 
5 cups chicken stock 
1 can (13oz) coconut milk 
6 thin slices of fresh ginger 
3 Tbsp. lime juice 
2 Tbsp. fish sauce 
¾ lb boneless chicken breast 
9-10 oz. baby spinach, sliced into thin shreds 
4 ounces shitake or button mushrooms, thinly sliced 
1 Tbsp. cilantro, chopped 
 
Directions:

I love this soup! Our friend Boris from Stuttgart was here, and made it for us, and it was so delicious! I'm going to have to make it again.
