    I love the flavors that are in this coconut curry soup. The touch of spice is evened out by the coconut milk and lime. When I’m feeling yuck, my go to meals are this coconut curry soup and my veggie noodle miso soup!

    Ingredients

    Making this Thai coconut curry soup recipe is so quick and easy. In fact you can get it done in 20 minutes so dinner is on the table before the hanger kicks in!

    All you need are some simple whole food ingredients that you can find in your local grocery store. If you are having trouble finding curry paste, check the international aisle.

    • Chickpeas – these add texture and protein to the soup. You can substitute other beans or even meat if you don’t need to keep the recipe vegan.
    • Mushrooms – the meaty texture goes well with everything else, and absorbs all the delicious flavors. This recipe was tested with crimini and shitake, but you can use any variety.
    • Peppers – using a mix of shishito, red chilis, and jalapeños add so much flavor.
    • Onion – sweet onion is our favorite to use, but brown, red, or white onions will also work.
    • Garlic – fresh garlic cloves will give you the best flavor, it is not recommended to use garlic powder instead.
    • Cilantro – this fresh herb is commonly used in curries. If you’re not a fan feel free to swap it out for other fresh herbs like Thai basil or parsley.
    • Thai red curry paste – adjust the amount used to control the spice level of the soup.
    • Coconut milk – it is best to use full fat coconut milk for the richest result
    • Vegetable broth – if you do not need to make a vegan curry, feel free to use chicken broth instead.
    • Greens – we like spinach, kale, or asian style greens. Use just one or a mix!
    • Lime juice – freshly squeezed limes will give you the best flavor, but bottled will work in a pinch.
    • Sea salt – taste before adding, curry paste has salt already!

    Quick and Easy Salad Hack

    The greens I used in this recipe are from Earthbound Farm Organic, the quality and flavor are always top notch!

    Earthbound Farm was the very first organic produce brand and are also a certified B Corp. They operating mostly out of northern California in the San Benito County and Salinas Valley, with a Farm Stand in the Carmel Valley.

    If you want to read about all the great information I learned, see my page All About Organic for what it truly means to be organic, organic practices and truly reputable resources on the subject.

    I have a little hack for you to help get even more greens into your meal. This is one you don’t want to miss!

    In my mission to be as “green” as possible (See what I did there? Green? as in greens and environmental? HA!), I made a side salad with my soup reusing the actual container!

    • Step 1: Put the dressing ingredients directly into the salad mix container, cover and shake. 
    • Step 2: Serve!

    Amazing right?! All you need to do is buy double the greens and you are set for an incredibly one and done nutritious meal you can’t beat!

    Flavor and Substitution Tips

    • When measuring the greens and cilantro, pack them down into the measuring cup as opposed to loosely measuring.
    • The sesame oil adds so much amazing flavor, but if you are oil free you can sub it for veggie broth.
    • Red curry paste was used for this recipe. Green curry paste and yellow curry paste can be substituted but it will change the flavor and spice level.
    • There are already a good number of veggies in this recipe, but feel free to add in as many as you like! Seriously, load up this soup with anything you have in the fridge!
    • You can also add in tofu if you like, simply press it then cube it and mix it in, or fry first to make it crispy.
    • Spice up this coconut curry soup with all the goodies like red pepper flakes, sriracha, extra curry paste, etc.
