Creamy Broccoli Soup with Ginger & Coconut

Creamy Broccoli Soup with Ginger & Coconut

Soup is the ultimate comfort food in my opinion, especially creamy soups.

There are dozens of variations of a 'cream of green things soup' in my repertoire, but this is the one I crave most often.  The exotic flavour combination of coconut, galangal and ginger with the broccoli is just dreamy.

I found this recipe on one of my all time favorite food blogs, La Tartine Gourmand.  I usually prepare it exactly as described here, with two omissions.  I'm not a huge fan of cilantro, so I leave it out, and salmon eggs are rarely stocked in my pantry, so I usually prepare the soup with out them too.

Fresh Local Ginger Root

I recently discovered beautiful, fresh, locally grown ginger root at The Local Source Market in Halifax's North End.  This shop is a real gem, it's pretty much guaranteed you will always find something interesting and unexpected every time you visit. 

Galangal is a spice similar to ginger, with lots of purported health benefits, and an interesting exotic flavour. It's available locally from the Spiceman at the Historic Halifax Farmers Market.

This is a quick and easy recipe to prepare, and the results are truly delicious.
