Save yourself a fortune soup

This is the most awesome soup! It is an exact replica of what they will easily charge you $8-10 for if you get enough for two or three people at this place that I used to love to go to before I moved. The only cool part is that they bring it in a flaming bowl. The soup costs less than two bucks to make at home and it is super easy! The perfect accent to any Asian meal!

4 cups of water
1 can of coconut milk
1-2 limes
Cayenne pepper [or a pinch of red curry paste]
Sea salt

Optional additions:
green onions
silken tofu
anything really!

Bring the water and the juice from the limes to a boil. The limes can be tricky because there are times when I have only had to use the juice of 1/2 of a lime but tonight, I needed 1 and a half. Just make sure you test it as you go along. Add the coconut milk, pepper/curry paste, and add enough salt to taste. It is a good idea to let it all simmer together for at least 45 minutes. If the soup boils down too much and is too sour, just add more water. I added some dried shitake mushrooms and it rocked.
