Thai Red Curry Noodle Soup
Whilst we’re in a complicated relationship with the weather this week – raining for 2 hours, sunny for 5 minutes – why not make a good ol’ noodle soup. Not just any ordinary chicken noodle soup but a Thai red curry noodle soup.
Not only is this recipe incredibly easy to make, it takes no time at all to put together. Plus It’s packed with plenty of vegetables, stuffed with good fats, and is an all rounder comforting dish. Plus it packs a good heat to clear your hayfever congestion – I got you, don’t worry.
I won’t take credit for this recipe as my SIL made it and sent me some to try during Ramadan. I kid you not, I’ve had it at least twice a week since she’s sent it – it’s that good.
All you’ll need is to get your hands on some Thai red curry paste which is easy to find on Amazon. This is the one I use – click here (<– affiliate link)
If you can’t get your hands on certain vegetables in the recipe like the pak choi, you can just leave it out or sub with any greens. The beauty of this soup is that you can add in any vegetables you have lying in the fridge!
