Thai Red Curry Noodle Soup

Bowl of Thai red curry noodle soup

 A THAI-RRIFIC RECIPE THAT’S DELICIOUS AND QUICK TO MAKE.

This dish would work well with chicken, salmon, and scallops. If you’d like a vegetarian version of the soup, click here.

When adding your red curry paste to the soup, start with less. Each curry paste differs in spice and potency.  Add a little, give the soup a try, and add more if needed. The key to this recipe is letting the spices roast and the herbs simmer to bring out all the lovely warm flavors.

Did you know kelp noodles are plant-based and mineral-rich? Plus, they have the texture of a glass noodle and soften over time as they are exposed to heat and acid. That’s why they make a great healthy alternative to conventional noodles.
