Creamy Pineapple Soup

Somlaw Machu Ktees Manaws

Healthy and creamy with natural sweet and sour from pineapple, it's no wonder that this  soup is comfort food. Despite it's beautiful deep red color, this popular soup is not spicy.


Heat chili powder in coconut oil on low heat, until the oil turns red.  Add lemongrass paste and salt, continue cooking until liquid is gone and paste begins to stick together.  

Turn heat to medium, add chicken and sauté until meat is evenly seared.  Add ¼ cup of water bring to boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes, stir halfway through.  Add pineapple, mix well.  Turn heat on high, add broth and bring to rolling boil. Add coconut milk, stir.  Turn off the heat, add in basil and kale.
