Do you love chicken tikka masala? If so, you're in luck — this comforting bowl of soup plays off the flavors of the Indian restaurant favorite. Intensely spiced, with coconut cream and crushed tomatoes to round it out, this soup is sure to become a weeknight dinner staple.

This dish has all the components of tikka masala: a potent spice mix (garam masala, cayenne, ginger, cumin, garlic, turmeric, and cinnamon), crushed tomatoes, shredded chicken (feel free to use a store-bought rotisserie chicken), and cream. The recipe calls for coconut cream, which makes this version dairy-free.

Although the author doesn't mention it, I'd serve the soup with some naan to sop up all the brothy goodness.
