One of my daughter’s favorite soups is Tom Kha Gai (Coconut Chicken Soup). We go to a local restaurant & they will make it gluten-free. But, as usual, I still don’t know how clean the other ingredients are, so I came home & researched several recipes on Pinterest & this is my Paleo Coconut Chicken Soup version that I came up with.

I haven’t tried this in the Instant Pot or Slow Cooker, but I’m sure it would be fine depending on your schedule! I will have to try it next time & update!


Ingredients:

Without Spinach!

Tips:

  • To slice the mushrooms thin, you can use a mandoline slicer like this.
  • Lemongrass: First, peel the outer layers (they look like corn husks). Then with the back of your knife or a rolling pin, smash the lemongrass.  Then, cut into quarters.
  • If you want it more nutrient-dense, throw in a handful of spinach or some chopped broccoli.

    Just made this in my instant pot and it is so amazing! I cooked it for 30 minutes and would recommend leaving out the coconut milk and the mushrooms after pressure cooking so they don’t get too mushy and the coconut milk will curd. I added carrots and cabbage to it. This was so delicious and easy. Thanks for the great recipe.

      Hi Nicki, Thanks so much for the comment. So glad this worked in the instant pot for you. I agree to leave the coconut milk & mushrooms out until after the pressure is released. Love the idea of adding carrots & cabbage. I’m all about getting as much nutrition in as possible!
