The healthy fat in coconut milk is 50% lauric acid, which can kill bacteria, fungi, and viruses, and a touch of green curry gives it just enough spice to warm you up on a chilly autumn day. This simple fall, flu-fighter soup also happens to be ridiculously tasty and easy to make; whip it up in minutes for a quick lunch, a standout side-dish for a potluck, or with hearty bread for a satisfying supper.
