Thai Cantaloupe Soup

Submitted by: KMHINMAN

Introduction

I was looking for a way to use up some fresh cantaloupe and found a recipe for a hot cantaloupe soup. I tweaked it a bit and this is the result. It is quite a yummy result. You could even add creme fraiche or sour cream and shrimp. I was looking for a way to use up some fresh cantaloupe and found a recipe for a hot cantaloupe soup.
