It’s Alix and Hugo from A Hedgehog in the Kitchen, back again to share a delicious soup recipe with you! We have been busy in our Parisian kitchen cooking our favorite Three Mushroom Pasta and Spaghetti all Vongole and sharing them on our blog. (Our recent trip to Italy has us inspired to make all kinds of yummy pasta recipes at the moment in addition to soothing soups.)

Today we’re sharing an immune system boosting coconut curry soup that is quick and easy to pull together and in line with all of your New Year new you goals. You can enjoy this soup while feeling confident that you are nourishing your body in a healthful way without skimping on flavor.

Coconut curry soup tips :

  • We used yellow curry powder for this recipe. You could also use a green or red Thai curry paste instead.
  • We recommend using a high quality coarse sea salt which adds flavor.
  • The creaminess of this soup pairs really well with a whole wheat bread.
  • You could replace the carrots in this recipe with potatoes, sweet potatoes or pumpkin.
  • You could add some protein in the form of chicken or fish if you like.

We love the texture of this soup and are sure you will too. The combination of carrot puree and coconut milk create a really smooth texture. It perfectly complements the slightly spicy kick of the soup. The curry powder will take you on an International adventure.
