Want an awesome beet soup that will rock your world? This Coconut Thai Borscht has your name on it. It's made with typical Thai flavors like ginger, garlic, coconut, lime, and not-so-typical beets. The combination is incredible. It's an easy-to-make healthy recipe you will LOVE!
Just look at that color!!!
I'm not usually such a pink girl, but that bowl of brightness has me changing my ways. Isn't it so pretty? It's seriously the most Valentine's Day appropriate soup I've ever laid eyes on.
So for all things pink and pretty today, let's eat Coconut Thai Borscht!
And let's eat it anytime we need a splash of color in our lives/ warming up/ a delicious bowl of soup.
I have a theory about Thai curry pastes. Want to hear it? I think that the best pastes have the least amount of English on the packaging. That's how I choose which brand to buy and it's always worked out for me.
The jar I normally reach for wasn't on the shelf when I went shopping. That little package up there with lots of Thai writing on it is super flavorful. If you can find it where you shop, definitely pick it up. If not, look for as little English on the package as possible.
Side note – that brand up there (Nam Jai Brand) has Whole30 compliant ingredients.
