Carolena Nereccio coconut milk soup

Show me the love!


Inspired by the founder of Fat Chance Belly Dance Style (formerly ATS), Carolena Nericcio loves the simplicity of this delicious no-chopping needed vegan gluten-free soup with just a can of coconut milk, a jar of salsa, and a dash of salt and turmeric.

Serves 3-4

Prep time: Ridiculously quick if you just dip crackers or bread in and omit the noodles
