We added coconut, green curry, brown rice and sliced almonds to Progresso hearty tomato soup for a tantalizing Thai twist on this traditional American comfort food.
can (13 to 14 oz) coconut milk (not cream of coconut)
teaspoons green curry paste
can (19 oz) Progresso™ Vegetable Classics hearty tomato soup
cup cooked brown rice, warmed
cup thinly sliced or chopped fresh basil leaves
cup sliced almonds
cup shredded coconut, toasted
In medium saucepan, heat coconut milk and curry paste, stirring occasionally, until milk is warm and curry paste is dissolved. Stir in tomato soup. Cook until steaming, but don’t allow mixture to boil.
Ladle soup into bowls; top each with a scoop of brown rice. Sprinkle with basil, almonds and toasted coconut.
Other fun toppings for this soup include golden raisins, chopped fresh cilantro and cream of coconut.
Give this soup additional heat by adding more green curry paste by the teaspoon until your preferred spiciness level is reached.
This is a great way to use leftover brown rice, but if you don’t have any, here’s how to cook it. In a 2-quart saucepan, heat 1 cup instant brown rice and 1 1/4 cups water to boiling. Reduce heat to low. Cover; simmer 10 minutes or until water is absorbed. Makes 2 cups rice. If you prefer long-grain brown rice and have time to cook it, use 2 3/4 cups water for 1 cup rice and simmer 45 to 50 minutes. Makes 4 cups rice. Keep some on hand in the fridge or freezer to use for this delicious soup and other recipes.
