Takeout Thai Curry Coconut Soup

  • Serves 4 • • Time: 30 minutes • LivBVOABTakeoutThaiCoconutCurryCreditBrilynnFerguson_0

Making takeout recipes at home is something I love doing on my YouTube channel. They are super popular because it’s an easy way to save money and eat  a little bit healthier. Thai is on my regular rotation and this recipe was inspired  by yellow curry, which I always order.

2 tbsp (30 mL) coconut oil

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 cup (125 mL) chopped green onions

1 cup (250 mL) chopped red bell pepper

1 cup (250 mL) chopped broccoli

1 medium carrot, chopped

3 tbsp (45 mL) Thai yellow curry paste (see My Tip)

1/2 tsp (2 mL) ground ginger

2 cups (500 mL) vegetable broth

1 cup (250 mL) water

1 can (14 oz/398 mL) full-fat 
coconut milk

3 tbsp (45 mL) brown sugar

4 oz (125 g) rice vermicelli noodles

  1. Heat a medium pot over medium heat. Add the coconut oil and heat until shimmering. Add the garlic and green onions and cook for 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until the garlic is just beginning to brown. Add the bell pepper, broccoli and carrot; cook for 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened slightly.
  2. Add the curry paste, ginger, vegetable broth, water, coconut milk and brown sugar; stir until combined and the curry paste is completely dissolved. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the soup has thickened slightly.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the noodles in a separate medium pot according to the package directions. Drain.
  4. Add the noodles to the curry mixture and stir to combine. Divide evenly among 
4 bowls. Serve.

My Tip

Be sure to read the ingredients list on your curry paste, as some brands contain seafood.
