This glowing bowl of Thai Green Curry Noodle Soup is infused with lemongrass, chilies and basil. Vibrant broccolini and tofu (or chicken) simmer gently in the broth before it’s ladled over rice noodles, then topped with crunchy bean sprouts, scallions, basil and lime wedges. This simple, soul-warming soup is a feast for the senses!
To simplify things, I’ve use store-bought Green Curry Paste, which allows the recipe to be made in 20-25 minutes. Of course, you can make the flavorful homemade green curry paste from scratch, perhaps on a Sunday, as part of your meal prep for the week. It’s just a matter of pulsing the ingredients together in a food processor, it’s not time-consuming and surprisingly easy. It just requires the gathering of ingredients. The homemade paste will produce a much more vibrantly colored broth. But if you don’t want to go there (no judgment), this store-bought paste works just fine and in the recipe there is a little tip to help brighten up the broth, giving it the vibrant green color you see here. Either way I think you will like it.

There has been much talk of coconut milk lately. A year ago it was considered “good” for you, and apparently, now it’s considered very “bad”. Personally, I choose the middle way . . . everything in moderation. Do I eat it every day? No. But I don’t villainize it. After all, it is ultimately a plant, grown from the earth, and a main staple in many healthy cultures and diets around the world. Do as you see fit.
As the flavorful broth simmers, cook the rice noodles and get the bowls ready.
Have I ever told you how much I love Thailand? If you ever get a hankering to go to Southeast Asia, Thailand should be your first stop. Not only is the food fresh and flavorful, the people are truly amazing. Find an island and let the relaxing healing energy sink deep into you. Take a local cooking class, go to the local food markets, and really get in there and experience it. Meander and explore. Talk to people and see if you can make a connection- the best part about travel.
Then pour the broth over top
