  5. Turn the grill to medium-high heat.
  6. After toasting the bread, spread the cheese on one side of each slice and broil until it melts.

The soup will keep in the fridge for up to a week, so it's ideal to have on hand for hungry kids when they return home from school.


Use leftover coconut milk in cereal, smoothies, or freeze in ice cube trays until you're ready to make this recipe again.
