I've had so much fun experimenting with soups this fall and winter! I was always so intimidated by soups for some reason but they truly are so easy and it's tough to mess them up, so they're the perfect Scrounge!
This soup has so much flavor and so many wonderful veggies in it I just LOVE it! I added chicken to mine but this would also be great without chicken as a vegetarian option, there are so many veggies it will still be filling enough.
Enjoy cozying up with this Thai Curry Soup all winter long!
If you don't have these exact ingredients, Scrounge with the things you have at home and you may end up creating something even better!
If you don't have shitake mushrooms, use any mushroom or do without
If you don't have cauliflower rice, use regular cauliflower, broccoli or do without
If you don't have kale use spinach, collards or do without
If you don't have peas, use peapods or do without
If you don't have chicken or you're a vegetarian, do without
If you don't have basil, use cilantro or do without
If you don’t have cannellini beans use black beans or do without
If you don’t have red curry paste try using tomato paste but make sure you use the curry powder too
Get creative and eat this soup over rice, noodles (zoodles, chickpea pasta, etc.) quinoa, cauliflower rice, etc.
