This delicious soup will make you think you are eating at an authentic Thai restaurant!

It’s full of snow peas, mushrooms, coconut milk, fresh spices and shrimp. It’s one of our go-to recipes because it’s easy and full of flavor. Even though it’s a soup we enjoy it served over rice noodles as a main entrée. Rice can be substituted for the rice noodles if you prefer.

Coconut milk

When shopping for coconut milk, please buy a brand that comes in BPA-free cans or find one that comes in carton packaging. The high fat content of coconut milk draws the BPA out of the cans liner and leaches into the food, exposing consumers to its toxic effects.  

Two of our go-to (BPA-free) brands are Native Forest, which you can purchase on Amazon if it’s not available at your local store, and Trader Joe’s.

Top tips for prepping ahead (on your food prep day or the night before)

Pre-chopping, cutting or cooking ingredients really helps to reduce stress and simplify dinner on busy weeknights. We know, we know, we’re always talking about meal prep, but it truly is the holy grail to healthy eating! 

  • Wash, trim and chop your snow peas
  • Grate your ginger and chop your garlic (use jarred minced garlic in a pinch) 
  • Wash and pick basil and cilantro leaves from the stem
