{Recipes} Spicy chicken coconut soup with baked ginger [Easy weekday dinners]

My family loves spice, and we love soup. So in this recipe I decided to combine the two! A spicy soup rich with the flavours of the middle East – chilli, masala, coconut, ginger…. Ooh how I am drooling just thinking of it! Chicken absorbs the flavours without adding another layer, plus the protein gained from a chicken breast fillet is higher than what you get from a steak (31g of protein in 100g chicken breast fillet vs 25g protein in 100g steak). The turmeric and ginger does wonders for keeping your immune system optimal, and coconut oil and cream provides all the good-kind fats that you need. All in all, a very healthy and tasty meal. And it looks good too! Definitely the dish that needs to be on the menu the next time you entertain the in-laws…

When cooking meals that your toddler will share, remember to rather opt for full cream products and not low fat or no fat. Toddlers still need the energy from full fat to keep them charged throughout the day, and also for the development of brain matter. Also, I am a firm believer in eating food in their natural state, and since no cow has succeeded in producing low-fat milk, I try and avoid it.
