CREAMY CHICKEN AND VEGETABLE SOUP

creamy-chicken-vegetable-soup-mainThis soup is pure comfort food: warm chunks of carrots and sweet potato in a rich chicken broth with a little coconut milk stirred in for good measure. It’s for people who want something really rich but get turned off by the texture of pureed soups. It’s for people who got an end-of-winter bug and don’t feel up to a big meal.
