There is something so comforting about a hearty bowl of chicken soup; here’s a recipe with a twist … a Thai-inspired chicken soup that’s packed with delicious Thai curry flavor.  Tender chicken, fresh veggies, creamy coconut milk and red curry paste all join to form a slightly sweet, slightly tangy, and flavorful soup.


Red curry paste consists of red pepper, garlic, lemongrass, galangal (Thai ginger), and makrut or kaffer lime leaves.  The spices used in it are coriander, turmeric, black peppercorn and cumin.  Coconut milk is a tasty and nutritious food filled with nutrients like manganese and copper.  Moderate amounts may boost your heart health; it is cholesterol and carbohydrate free but watch for the fat content.

·       1 large onion sliced

·       1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
