Wow! So delish! I did double the recipe, and based on other reviews, I substituted 1/2 coconut oil and 1/2 olive oil in place of butter. I also used a full 14 oz. can of coconut milk in place of the heavy cream. I added 3 small spoonfuls of minced garlic, the heads from a bunch of asparagus, and a 6 oz. package of mushrooms to the initial saute. In place of an apple I used a whole large Asian pear (because I had one around), which I grated, and I added 16 dried red chilies, which cooked from the very beginning until the rice and pear were added (the soup had become spiced to my liking - I omitted black pepper). For the rice, I added in pre-cooked jasmine rice (2 c.), because I've had very bad luck with cooking raw rice into soups before.
