Easy Red Curry Soup

Print Friendly

I spent a lazy Sunday morning in bed, watching the latest episode of Iron Chef America (Morimoto vs. Pasternack in Battle Wreckfish <–not a joke). 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! Damn you, Iron Chef! 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.


  • 1/2 cup full fat coconut milk
  • 1/2 can (~7 oz) fire-roasted diced tomatoes
  • 1-2 Tbsp red curry paste (more = spicier, check label for funky ingredients like sugar)
  • 1/2 tsp powdered ginger
  • Cooked spaghetti squash
  • Leftover cooked veggies (I used grilled peppers, mushrooms and a handful of spinach leaves)
  • Leftover cooked meat (I used sliced grilled steak)

1. In a small saucepan, combine coconut milk, tomatoes, curry paste and ginger. Stir with a whisk to combine.

2. Cook over medium-low heat until the mixture bubbles.

3. Add cooked veggies and meat until heated through. Pour over spaghetti squash to serve.

4. I finished it with a dash of sriracha!

    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!

    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.
