Not trying to toot my own horn here, but this plant-based soup is seriously amazing. It’s like spiced cream from heaven. Slurp! On top of being delicious, the coconut milk in this vegan soup also has some impressive health benefits. Coconut milk is known to lower cholesterol and blood pressure, help with weight loss, and improve digestion. The addition of coconut milk also allows this soup to be naturally dairy and gluten-free. In other words, you can’t go wrong here.
