This Thai coconut curry soup recipe is one of my favorite recipes on any fitness regimen because it’s fast, easy, delicious, and not too heavy on calories with my portion bowl.
The flavors of this coconut curry soup come as close to the Thai version as I remember it the last time I was in Thailand.
Thai coconut soup curry is sweet, salty, spicy, savory and so yummy and filling without blowing the calorie limit.
I didn’t use one or two of the traditional toppings because I’m a picky eater.
You will see a lot of soups in my recipes because I love, love, love soup.
One pot, lots of veggies and I can get most of my daily nutrients in one meal.
You really can’t go wrong with this coconut curry soup recipe if followed step by step.
I’m the sort of person that’s more likely to burn down the kitchen than cook correctly but I still managed to get a lot of this right because it’s so simple.
How to Make Thai Coconut Curry Soup
For my Thai coconut curry soup recipe, I utilized the following ingredients:-
- Vegetable oil
- Chicken breasts – the recipe usually calls for shrimp but I prefer chicken
- Coriander powder
- Coconut milk
- Chicken stock
- Red curry paste
- Lemongrass paste
- Sambal oelek
- Fish sauce or soy sauce
- Brown sugar
- Lime zest
- 8 oz vermicelli rice noodles
- Julienned carrots
- Basil or Thai basil if you can find it
- Lime juice
You can also garnish with bean sprouts, spring onions, and Thai chili if you want.
I prepare my chicken earlier because I want to get some stock out of it for other dishes later on.
I freeze the stock and then add the chicken into the coconut curry soup in the later stages.
After cooking the coconut curry soup, I portion it into 3 or 4 containers and that’s my dinner for the next 3 – 4 nights.
Thai coconut curry soup is ready in less than 30 minutes and requires only one pot to bring it together once all ingredients are prepped.
My version might be missing a few things but anything that isn’t there is because I don’t like eating it.
