Finished testing this soup just before submitting the Eat, Drink and Be Vegan manuscript.
This Thai Coconut Corn Stew is so fragrant, and when cooking fills your kitchen with the aromatics of lemongrass, coriander seeds, ginger, and garlic. It's a little spicy, but not overly so. Rather than being intense with heat, it's intense with flavor!
It can be served as a main course, but also makes an elegant starter soup. I say elegant, but that's only because the flavors are beautiful and it looks so pretty. It's not elaborate or challenging in prep time or work. In fact, it's requires no more prep than most other soups.
You'll love this one, particularly if you enjoy those fresh flavors of lemongrass, coriander, ginger and garlic, all set against a creamy sweet corn and coconut background that isn't heavy or rich, but delicate and well balanced.
Everyday Dish update: Also wanted to let you know that the Everyday Dish dvd was reviewed by Bob and Jenna on the Vegan Freaks #71 podcast (the newer podcast #72 is now up, but their review is on #71). Go have a listen (and remember, these podcasts are for adult ears). :)
