I'm on a diet where coconut milk isn't allowed but double cream is. I'm hoping to make a yummy japanese soup tonight but the recipe needs cocount milk adding to the stock. Do you think a slosh of double cream would work just as well? If not I'm happy just to have the plain stock

If it weren't Japaneese, I would have siad yes, but I know nothing of Japeneese cooking!

I imagine it would work with pumpkin soup, ut I'm guessing that's not Japaneese.

I've just made a very nice pumpkin soup with cream but it was a middle eastern affair. Japanese don't really do dairy products.

Oh it's not so much the fact that it's japanese. I'm only making it for myself as I love the recipe and can throw plenty of chillies ginger and lime in for taste. But I wondered if the cream would do something odd, that's all

Would love to know what diet it is.

I would leave it out rather than sub with cream.

It's a low carb diet and I'm only 2 weeks in and don't want to mess it up. I think I will probably just have the plain stock, there will be plenty of flavour with all the stuff I am throwing in with it
