Las dos cosas básicas necesarias para mantener la vida son la luz del sol y la leche de coco!

Hello my Steemian friends! Today we are cooking something healthy and delicious straight from an Asian kitchen this is Coconut Lemongrass Clam Soup!

Yes, you can call me a cocoholic coz I get high on coconut. I can't find any other reasons to not love coconut itself.

Watch this VIDEO for a full recipe adventure!

From leaves, to bark, to root, to the fruit and the juice and meat, what else do you miss! Coconut is all good for you.

From make up removal, to skin moisturizer, to refreshing juice (it's even equivalent to a clinical dextrose that supplies a lot of needed electrolytes for the body), to mouthwash, to cooking oil, to food, copra and milk, to roofing for houses, lumbers for buildings, to ropes to rugs, you name it girl!

The coconut is indeed a plant of wonders! No reason why it's called the "Tree of Life".

For this recipe, we are gonna use coconut milk which is the base of our soup here. Adding a ribbon of fresh lemongrass collides with the milk coconut flavour and the clams.

I grew up with my Mom always making coconut soup for lunch and mixed with bunch of vegetables like squash, oregano, malunggay, sayote and sometimes unripe jackfruit.

Watch More of My Recipe VIDEOS!

I have to be honest with you guys. I don't really call it vain but I love watching my food videos. It feels like a meditation for me. It is basically the sound and art in the kitchen. The sound of the fork, the spoon, the knife, the cutting board, the water, the mixing, the squeezing, the blending and everything in it sounds like in a grand symphony: a kitchen live music. For me, it is just sooo soothing. It's the reason why I put audio on my videos so you guys can experience a different way to watch too. So I wanna share with you some of videos here:
