Thai Coconut Curry Vegetable Soup
This soup recipe originally came from Delish but I made a few modifications, most noticably the fact that I don’t use chicken since it tastes so amazing with just vegetables. The fresh lime juice squeezed on at the end is so important so make sure not to leave that part out! This is hands down one of my favorite soups and my family’s too!
- 1 tbsp.vegetable oil
- 1 small spanish onion, chopped
- 2 red bell peppers, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tbsp. curry powder
- kosher salt
- 1 13 fl oz. can coconut milk (shaken well)
- 2 boxes of low-sodium chicken broth, about 6 cups
- 2 tbsp of fresh cilantro chopped
- 1 small bag of snow peas rinsed and cut at a diagonal so that all are cur in half.
- 1 bag or container of fresh baby spinach
- 1 large package ramen noodles (chinese noodles) or 2 small instant ramen packages, seasoning discarded. Break your ramen noodles up so it is easier to eat with a spoon.
- Lime wedges for squeezing over top of soup when serving
- In a large pot over medium heat add your oil. Once the oil is hot, add your onions, garlic, snow peas and red pepper and saute until the onions become translucent, about 4-5 minutes. Next, add your chicken broth and coconut milk and stir well. Now add your curry powder, a good pinch of salt and your cilantro and mix well again. Add your fresh spinach stir and cover. Bring to a light simmer and reduce heat to medium low and let simmer for 5 minutes to let the flavors come together. While it is simmering, cut up your limes into wedges and put aside for later. After the soup has simmered for 5 minutes, increase the heat to medium and add your ramen noodles then mix well continuously so they do not stick. The ramen should only need about 3-5 minutes to cook. Once the ramen is cooked through, taste for seasoning. Add more salt if it needs it. Now, turn off the heat and ladle the soup with the ramen into bowls and serve with the lime wedges on the side for everyone to squeeze over top.
- The recipe is a larger one that will feed a family of 4 for 2 nights. You can also half the recipe if you need to for a smaller group.
