Guess what the surprise is? That’s right there’s no potato or leek in it! But you wouldn’t know it on tasting it!

Simple and refreshing, my baby loves it and so do my “cooked” friends and family. Plus no salt, yay!
I used to love ordering Tom Kha Gai at Thai restaurants, which is a coconut lemongrass soup with chicken in it. The theme of this month’s raw-food potluck in DC was coconuts, so I decided to see if I could make something remeniscent of the Tom Kha Gai of my memories. Lots of pleasant surprises while working with coconuts: I learned how to make my own shredded coconut and coconut butter!
