This noodle soup is made with Thai curry paste and coconut milk for a creamy and warming Asian inspired coconut ramen. Leave the egg off to make this coconut curry soup vegan.
This is such a warming and spicy bowl of deliciousness 😎
I love this soup. It’s warm, spicy and full of flavour. Plus there’s topping galore and all the vegetables you could want so it’s a healthy autumn meal which will never get boring.
You can add any veggies you like to it but for this version I went with mushrooms and pak choi. The soup broth is made from a mixture of vegetable stock and coconut milk with loads of garlic, ginger and Thai red curry paste.
Despite all the amazing flavour, it’s actually so quick to make this soup. As long as you’re organised you can get the whole thing on the table in less than 20 minutes.

Red Curry Paste: I use a store bought one but feel free to make your own if you like
Sesame Oil: For that wonderful nutty taste

Veggies: I added chestnut mushrooms, pak choi and edamame
Eggs: Boiled to your liking
