Spicy Thai Curry Veggie Noodle Soup

Spicy Thai Curry Veggie Noodle Soup
I love soup regardless of the weather, but some soups do taste better when it is cool. And this week has been cool. Almost fall like, the wind has been blowing and it has been overcast. The sun was not able to break through the clouds all day today. What better way to celebrate the seasonal change than a steamy spicy creamy broth soup brimming with noodles, veggies and fresh herbs.

Living in a small town has many benefits, but along with the good there can be pitfalls as well. Access to medical and dental services being one of the biggest. Here in Yachats, we are fortunate enough to have a video store that also carries organic produce and organic spices, herbs, grains and salts (they actually sell 15 different kinds). This is where I purchase many of my curries and spices.

Today’s recipe is from the “Pure Delicious”, cookbook by Heather Christo. This same soup is also posted on her blog. I followed the instructions very closely but added a little more spice and some veggies.

Mysavoryspoon was first started in 2010 as a way to journal recipes that I had collected from cookbooks, magazines, family and friends. Most everything was savory, using legumes and whole grains. Along the way I discovered a love for baking. Now a couple times a month you might see some type of sweet pie or treat.

  6. What a delicious looking soup. The weather is still hot and dry here, but all too soon I'll be dragging out the stock pot. This will be one of the first soups to grace my fall table. Thanks for the recipe.

  7. This looks so delicious, Cheri! I have never made or eaten anything like this before. I would love to try it. I will have to do so when my husband is out of town though, as he hates anything with coconut in it. I am pinning to make the next time he is gone (and when it gets a little cooler here)! :)

  15. I love your video store! Dinner AND a movie!

    The soup looks absolutely delicious - I need to make another batch of red curry paste soon so I can try this.

    Your cool gray weather looks refreshing, although this monsoon season in Tucson has been wonderful. Every morning is cool, and the desert loves all the rain!

  25. Your video store reminds me of some of the Indian grocery stores here in the US, they also have an extensive video section for Bollywood movies! I always thought that was funny but I guess it's convenient!
    I'm one of those people who love soup regardless of the season! My children don't seem to mind and my son downright enjoys soup in the summer, but he also wear hoodies in 100 degree weather and shorts when it's below freezing...
    This is soup sounds lovely.. A bit like laksa with the curry paste, noodles and vegetables. My favourite things and flavourings!

  26. It must be cooling down, because I've made two soups in the past few days! Yours looks lovely.
