Nearly Instant Thai Coconut Corn Soup


So my brother has been "McDougalling" for 5 weeks now, and has lost 19 lbs! He has basically been eating brown rice & beans, cereal, more rice topped with assorted soups/sauces and some limited amounts of fruits and veggies (he's not a big produce fan.) All in all he LOVES this way of eating over his traditional "Atkins-type" plan of loosing weight he always resorted to. He says he feels great eating like this. Improved energy, digestion and satisfying meals are amongst his list of pros. Problem is, he is staring to get a little bored. (Which can happen if you don't get creative in the kitchen) So my brother enlisted the help of his sweet wife (who started McDougalling yesterday) and the two of them created their very first (although I'm sure the first of many) "Big Bro Modification" recipes. They took this recipe for Nearly Instant Thai Coconut Soup, from my website, that I took from Nava Atlas' cookbook Vegan Express - and made a few delicious changes.

Morgan Modification to Nearly Instant Thai Coconut Corn Soup - mmm...this is sooo good!!

First off, only add 2 cups of rice milk (I used soy) - this makes it thicker, more chowder-like, then add 1 large or 2 small diced pre-cooked potatoes (I put mine in the micro, removed the skins, then diced), and garnish with chopped jalapenos (and cilantro as noted in original recipe)
Serve over Kashi 7-grain Pilaf, or your favorite grains.
