There's nothing more comforting than a creamy, savory, and warming bowl of Thai chicken & coconut soup, so thank goodness our #WWFamily from Down Under shared this delicious dish with us. It couldn't be more simple to whip up! Combining fragrant curry paste, filling coconut milk, broth, noodles, and pre-chopped frozen vegetables, there's so little for you to do. We used a frozen stir-fry mix consisting of carrot, baby corn, green beans, and broccoli but you can use any frozen stir-fry mix that include your favorite veggies!
