Can something be soothing and peppy at the same time? Yes! In this unique Coconut Barley Soup, coconut milk, milk and barley provide a soothing base, while pungent ginger, garlic and green chillies provide a spicy touch enhanced by the lemon grass and spring onions. This zesty soup is made more sumptuous and colourful by the addition of cubed carrots.
