Cocos In My Soup - Creative Monday Blog Hop

    What do you cook in your soup?  Cocos is a  must whenever I cook soup. Originally from the  Pacific region coco is a starchy tuber that can be found in tropical countries. After being reaped they are peeled and then put in soup to be cooked for about 1 hour. They help to thicken the soup.

Hi Maria,
My weekend has been fine apart from internet problems. It has been a bit chilly here for March so soup is just perfect at this time. I hope you, Steve and Beano have had a wonderful weekend and I wish you all an enjoyable week. Take care. Lots of Love, Friendship and Best Wishes always.

I have never heard of cocos! Sounds much healthier than thickening up soup with half and half or flour. ;) I might have to give these a try next time I make soup! Hop you have a great week, Judy!

It reminds me of this starchy root I use to makevmy hubby's Central American soups- I can't remember what it's called! It's starchy like a potato but with a slightly cheesier texture, and takes on whatever flavors I cook it with. Yum!

Claire Justine said...

Winnie said...

Thank you for hosting my sweet friend. I am sending hugs your way!

Anji said...

When cooked they look a bit like salsify, though I imagine they aren't. I like the pretty plate with flowers on.

Sandee said...

Like our potatoes I'm guessing. A starch. I'd not heard of these before.

Have a terrific day Judy. :)

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks Katherine! Have a good day.

Judy Haughton-James said...

We always have to have a meat in our soup. I would love to make a traditional veggie soup, but my husband complains if there is no meat in it.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks Claire. It is good to be co-hosting again. I have been having serious internet problems. I hope it will be over soon.

Judy Haughton-James said...

I also like meat in my soup Theresa. These days I include chicken.

Judy Haughton-James said...

I usually use a lot of flour in my soup too Heather but I have stopped in recent years.

Judy Haughton-James said...

I am so glad to be a part of this blog hop !! I have seen tubers that look similar in my grocery store, but they are much larger. Are they found in America or are they only native to Jamaica?

Judy Haughton-James said...

You are welcome Lisa. Have a good day.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks for participating victory. Cocos can be found in Jamaica and many other tropical countries. Take care and have a good day.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks Elle!

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks Laurie! God Bless!

AVCr8teur said...

I am not familir with cocos. I wonder if they taste like potatoes or taros?

Judy Haughton-James said...

Hi AVCr8teur,
They do not really taste like potatoes but look a bit similar.
