Nutritional values

Unconcentrated, irritable and sleep problems? Then you should include this soup in your menu as a permanent fixture. Just one serving will give you far more than your daily niacin requirement. The B-vitamin helps to prevent such problems from occurring in the first place.

The soup is also suitable as a starter for 4 people. It goes best with a light main course, e.g. fish fillet with salad.

To thicken the soup you could cook it longer before adding the chicken. Coconut milk thickens as it cooks.
 
Thanks Eatsmarter! Quick question: How do I make the soup thicker?
