Thai Green Coconut Curry Soup Recipe

Thai Green Coconut Curry Soup Recipe
30-Minute meals are always convenient, especially on weeknights. However, they don’t need to be boring. Why not try this easy Thai Green Coconut Curry Soup with Vegetables & Beef which can easily be made in less than 30 minutes. This is a warming, full-flavored soup, and if you happen to have rice around, you can put a scoop in the bowl before spooning in the soup. Basic Cream Soup Mix saves even more time and thickens the soup.
You can vary the fire in this delicious curry soup by adding more or less Thai green curry paste, which is available at Asian grocery stores and on the Asian food aisle in most larger grocery stores. The Thai fish sauce can also be found easily in the same spots. This recipe has been adapted from one in an excellent cookbook, The Quick & Easy Healthy Cookbook: 125 Delicious Recipes Ready in 30 Minutes or Less which includes dozens of quick recipes for anyone who is busy. Incidentally, you can substitute chicken or pork for the flank steak if you like.

8 Servings

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 pound flank steak, thinly sliced

1 to 3 tablespoons Thai green curry paste (I use 2)
2 tablespoons Thai fish sauce
2 13.5 oz. cans unsweetened coconut milk

1 red bell pepper, cored, quartered, and sliced
12 ounces fresh broccoli florets
4 cups water
1 cup Basic Cream Soup Mix
Juice of 1 lime

Cooked jasmine rice

  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a medium soup pot.
  2. Add the steak and stir fry until browned.
  3. Stir in the curry paste and cook an additional five minutes; stir in the fish sauce and coconut milk.
  4. Bring to a boil and cook 5 minutes.
  5. Stir in the bell pepper and broccoli, water, and cream soup mix; let cook just until the vegetables are crisp-tender and the soup is thickened.
  6. Squeeze in the lime juice, stir, and serve with rice if you like.
