Coconut Soup

Michael and I spent our 21st anniversary in Logan. We had dinner at the Cafe Sabor, I didn't care much for my food, but what was so excellent was the coconut soup! I loved it so much that I asked for the recipe. This is what was sent to me. I know it is different because the soup had mushrooms in it and I could have sworn I tasted a bit of curry or cumin in it, not much but a hint of it.

This seems to be a good low carb recipe too so enjoy.
