There’s the ideal way to make this soup and then there’s the Zombie apocalypse way to make this soup. The Zombie apocalypse method really is pretty good because you’re going to end up with a rich and creamy soup that will remind you of what life used to be. A little more decadent perhaps but then you have to prepare some of those luxury items. In this case, tinned coconut cream and croutons. I can guarantee you that when supermarkets impose purchasing restrictions, they will not be limiting coconut cream or croutons. So go ahead and use that six figure income to stock up on life’s non essentials. Seriously, who wants to be existing at the end of time with the masses who are eking out their days on baked beans?
