Coconut Curry Soup

I’m so out of sorts. It’s the middle of  March and it’s 78 degrees out.

I go to my closet full of sweaters and struggle to find something to wear.

It all started with the time change, it took me a week to get back in rhythm and then there was St. Patty’s Day…it took me a day to get over that. :)

I wanted to make soup tonight – the hearty kind full of beans and meat that sticks to your ribs.

But it’s 78 degrees out…

I should be grilling but couldn’t bring myself to do it.

I made soup but unlike the original one I was planning on making, I found this one that is light and full of vegetables…

with a kick!

It did the trick. I found the recipe on and was hooked!

We love curry and usually make red curry – tonight, we were trying green curry.

I added a few of my own vegetables to the pot and dinner was on.

It’s light and spicy but easy to make…leaving enough time to go for a walk in this magnificent weather!

    This soup looks awesome, love all those ingredients but would never think to put them together, thanks for the recipe. Congrats on the top 9 :)

  5. I love a good coconut curry too. In sapporo, Japan where I live we a dish called Soup Curry. Some restaurants have a coconut soup curry dish with chicken and vegetables and other toppings that you want to add. You can also choose a spice level. This Japanese dish has been becoming hugely popular in the last 10-15 years and I think it will be huge in the future. It’s actually my favourite Japanese dish now, but I had never even heard of it until I came to Sapporo, Japan. I think most people outside of Japan will have never heard of Soup Curry. It is so good!
