Mango Coconut Foam Soup
This mango coconut foam soup is rich, airy and just a bit spicy. Since it’s a culinary foam instead of a traditional liquid soup, the texture is different than what many people will expect, which adds an all new dimension to the dish. The coconut, mango and curry combine to create a slightly sweet, spicy flavor profile that makes this a great way to start just about any meal.
