Coconut Shrimp, Cabbage and Rice Soup


Happy Sunday, Soupers!  What’s yellow, light, delicate and 100 percent yummy?  Coconut Shrimp, Cabbage and Rice soup!  Summer is in full swing here in Switzerland, so that last thing we needed was a complicated meal.  Nothing gets easier than this!  If you close your eyes, you’ll swear you’re on holiday!  The best part, you can easily adapt this soup by swapping out the shrimp for chicken, and swap the cabbage for spinach and voila — an entirely different soup, but still oh, so good!
