Recipe Notes
  • This is a vegetarian recipe, vegan if you leave out the cream (use coconut cream instead).
  • I use organic stock powder without yeast. You might have to adjust the amount used, depending on your brand.
  • Substitute the fresh basil leaves with dried basil.
  • Substitute the basil with smoked paprika powder or chilli powder to taste.
  • The soup tastes even better on the next day!
