Coconut Green Curry Noodle Soup

I’ve been going through a bit of a curry phase lately… as you may have noticed (yes, along with my muffin obsession). And this isn’t even the last of my curry recipes (hint, hint, I have another coming to you next week). But here’s how I think about it: curry is such a flavorful vehicle to getting lots of veggies, whole grains, and protein rich beans into your diet, so why not curry? AND one of those little jars of curry paste can typically make about two meals, so I am simply providing lots of ideas for you to choose from to use up that baby jar of deliciousness 🙂 Justified? I think yes.

Back to this soup— curry noodle soup mightttt be my favorite way to enjoy curry. A spicy broth, crunchy vegetables, and oodles of thin brown rice noodles that have just been soaking up all that curry flavor. Magic!

Plus the toppings. Oh, the topping you can add! Fresh cilantro, lime juice, jalapeño, green onion, sriracha, the list goes on and on. And who doesn’t love a good bowl of spicy soup with lots of toppings?? No one in my house, that’s for sure!

So if you’re looking for some more curry options to try, here are a few favorites I’ve posted on the blog lately. Some of them involve that wonderful curry paste you can buy in the Ethnic Foods aisle of the grocery store, and some are just a nice blend of curry powder and other spices.

  1. Yum yum yum! This sounds wonderful! I’ve never actually had green curry before…I’m used to the yellow stuff. This sounds like the perfect recipe to ease myself into a whole new world of curry! Pinned!

    • This was actually my first time making green curry as well, but it was super simple and SO delicious! I keep changing which color is my favorite curry 🙂 So glad you like it!

  2. Looks good! Just so you’re aware, you don’t have the noodles listed in the ingredients list. Not a big deal for people who just read the recipe, but it’s harder for people who import into places like Plan to Eat. Looking forward to trying this – we tried your red curry noodle soup a little while ago and loved it! 🙂

    • Thanks for that catch! Totally missed that!

      Glad to hear you liked the red curry soup. This one is just as good… maybe even better! Let me know what you think 😉
