But my professionally impressed mind is, how can I say this… taking a break? and I guess I’m the truth is officially going to name this the Anything-You-Have Coconut Curry Soup. 🙆 Are all of us okay with that?

You desire to make certainly one of the bajillion recipes out of your Pinterest board, but you don’t have further than half of the meals for any of them.

There are essentially NULL components to this recipe.

Part one: the soup base, which is created from any quantity of delicious aromatics (onion, garlic, ginger) and curry (could be red or inexperienced paste – possibly even powder, for those who labored it right) and a nice quantity of creamy coconut milk. This flavorful coconut milk concoction is then pureed with some veggies, hopefully starchy ones like potatoes, so you possibly can a luscious, silky-smooth texture to your easy coconut curry soup. But the magnificence is which you simply possibly too can use special veggies to puree – like eggplant, candy potatoes, or carrots. Main idea: thicken the sauce via means of pureeing with veggies.

Part two: the toppings. I can’t even cross into it or we’ll be proper proper here for hours. But I selected tofu (crispy-caramelizingly-fried in a section of splash of the coconut soup itself), cilantro, carrot noodles, and purple cabbage. And sriracha. Unpictured, but yes, all of the time sriracha.

As if that weren’t sufficient choices, this might be made within the crockpot whereas you’re at work all day OR in a nice ol’ soup pot over the stove.

SO MANY CHOICES. I’ll simply supply you a moment to process.

Really, how I got here to be a consumer who owns a tofu press is a section of bit of a lengthy story.

But in classic it is going like this: I desire to practice dinner and consume meatless recipes, and I desire to purchase random objects on Amazon. Therefore, TOFU PRESS. The end.

While you make the soup, the useful little press will squeeze out all of the water from the tofu all on its own – and there's no longer any need for you to clutter round with a complete complete roll of paper towels or get tofu water throughout the place. EASY.

Getting all that water out facilitates cut back the tofu-mush-factor. Then, whenever you practice dinner it, it gets golden brown and crispy at the backyard and you’ll love it. Cutest little invention for $20 on Amazon – and it has a 5-star score from 250 reviews.

Friends, don’t purchase a tofu press for those who don’t make much of tofu. But in case your tale is comparable to mine (loves meatless and loves Amazon gadgetry), you may desire to get on that train.

Okay, here’s the factor I’ve the truth is needed to inform you the complete time but got a section of distracted via means of the tofu press.

This soup is form of like SOUP MEETS SALAD. Which sounds fully weird. And seems to be a section of weird. You stir all of it up and, just, it turns into one thing strange looking. I can settle for that.

But it’s no longer bizarre – it’s so, so good. It’s like an anything-you-have model of non-authentic pho. Like you realize how with pho, they pile the soup excessive with sprouts and cilantro and virtually make it into one thing of a Soup Salad? That’s what this is. I heavily LOVED consuming it as it was facet crunchy-healthy salad, and facet comforting-cozy soup, and I may use special veggies and protein every one time I made it. Lindsay is my identify and soup+salad texture is my game.

Remember – one thing you have. There are probably, like, five barriers to that rule within the complete universe, but frequently speaking, you possibly can work with what’s on your fridge proper now (check out my notes within the recipe itself for genuine ideas).

Just observe your normal curry senses.

They are superior you instantly residence into the palms of a Soup-Salad bowl of Coconut Curry Soup.
