Spicy Thai Curry Soup

We’ve had a cool & rainy week this week in Portland. I saw this soup recipe on Heather Christo’s site and decided to make it for dinner.  It took 15 minutes to make and made my house smell amazing. I served this soup with lime and sriracha for a little extra kick – it was really delicious and warmed us right up. My husband took the leftovers to work and said it was really tasty.

Combine the garlic, ginger, and curry paste in a small bowl. Add the coconut oil and mix well.  In a large pot, heat the curry mixture over medium heat cooking for 1-2 minutes.

Deglaze the pot with the chicken broth then add the coconut milk; bring to a boil. Season with sea salt, to taste. Place the noodles into the boiling broth and let the noodles cook for 2-3 minutes. Add half of the fresh basil and cilantro; mix well. Ladle into bowls then top evenly with the remaining basil, cilantro, and red chile slices. Serve with fresh lime wedges & sriracha if desired.
