Shrimp, Chard, Coconut Curry Soup


Happy Sunday, Soupers! Ever get so engrossed in a movie, that forget what you’re supposed to be doing? In my case, it was cooking! 😂 Well, fall’s officially here — yay! and because I got a late start, I needed something light that wouldn’t interfere with dinner. We found it in our first attempt at a shrimp, coconut milk curry soup with chard! We added the milk too early, so careful. Enjoy!
