Lobster and Coconut Soup
Coconut milk is as velvety as cream, but contains only about 15 % or, in the light version used here, just 12 % fat. It is also pleasing that the aromatic liquid is completely cholesterol-free!
A feast for all who like it creamy and yet low-fat! You can even increase the low-fat factor: Just take 1 tbsp. oil to fry and cook the lobster meat and chillies in a little broth instead of butter.
