Thai Green Curry Soup (THM S)

I’d grown up in a small town, in rural Nova Scotia, so my exposure to international cuisine was very limited.  It wasn’t until we moved our young family to Ontario that I was truly turned on to a world of different flavors and food options.  My first experience with Thai food was the safe option that we all start with…Pad Thai.

It was so delicious that I needed to try more of what Thai cuisine could offer.  Green curry soup is now one of my favorites to order when at a Thai restaurant. I still love the Pad Thai dish, but I don’t love the sugar and the simple carbs found in those rice noodles…..just bad for the waistline and ones health in general.  However sugar free living doesn’t stop me from enjoying Thai Green Curry Soup.  I make it at home now to be sure it’s sugar free.  What a lovely treat to have… the heat from the green curry paste that is balanced with the fresh flavors of ginger, coconut and cilantro.  It’s a winner in my book.

The taste keeps me coming back to this recipe time and time again.  I pull this simple recipe out when I have a group coming for dinner.  It’s the recipe that gets requested the most and gets rave reviews from all.   I do hope you enjoy this dish as much as I have.  I mean who needs an excuse to eat shrimp?  ❤

  1. Do you know what the difference is between red curry & green curry paste? This looks totally amazing but I only have red curry on hand.
