• Easy Red Curry Soup Recipe

    Easy Red Curry Soup| stupideasypaleo.comI spent a lazy Sunday morning in bed, watching the latest episode of Iron Chef America (Morimoto vs. Pasternack in Battle Wreckfish). Apparently wreckfish is a pretty rare, enormous, disgustingly-oogly eyed fish that frequents old abandoned shipwrecks, hence the name. Anyhow, Morimoto made pho with fish noodles, and the entire day all I wanted to eat was a steaming hot bowl of soup!

    As evening approached and my will to cook something up started to fade, I decided to make a curry soup that literally took 5 minutes to prepare. (Granted, I did have all the veggies and meat already cooked.)

    This would be a great dish to make on a mid-week night when you’re pressed for time and want to give your leftovers a little flair. The spaghetti squash was a great noodley substitute and the red curry paste gave just the right amount of spice! This served one very hungry gal so you can adjust the quantities to your appetite.

    1. New to paleo and new to cooking Thai cuisine, so I only used 1 T Red Curry Paste. Next time I think I will use 2 T but excellent recipe that my family loved. Thanks!

    2. This is delicious. I added in some little pieces of bacon too. I love all of your recipes! They’re so simple, which is good because I like eating real food but don’t really like cooking.

    3. The recipe sounds lovely but I ( yes I am a man who lives on his own) have no idea what sirachi is or were to buy it, I did ask in an Asian store but met with blank looks as they had no idea what I was on about, and I take it spaghetti squash is, but think it must be a squash of some kind?? I do realise that this will make me sound as though I know nothing, but would like to learn more about cooking and of paleo

      1. Hi Kevin…I’m guessing you’re from the UK. In that case, spaghetti squash is quite hard to find. (I lived in the UK a few years ago and rarely saw it.) Yes, it’s a type of squash.

        Sriracha is an Asian spicy chile sauce. You could add a dash of whatever spicy chile sauce you have available to you.

        With cooking, it’s more about balancing flavors instead of using exact ingredients 🙂
