A few weeks ago I saw this recipe for Banana-Coconut Soup on Paula's Party on The Food Network. I love that show and watch it on Friday nights if I am home. She had a guest chef present this recipe and he just talked about it instead of making the entire thing. I knew it was the perfect soup to try for February's Focus: Soup's On! hosted by A Veggie Venture.
What I thought was so unique was the use of bananas in this soup. But it doesn't really taste too much like banana. It is really sweet and tastes alot like coconut. I made a big mistake by pouring myself a huge bowl. This soup is definitely meant to be served in cup-size portions. It is really good though and I would have loved to have some really, really spicy shrimp to eat with it. I felt that I'd need something spicy to balance the sweet.
You can find the recipe for Banana-Coconut Soup online at the Food Network website.
