Thai Coconut Curry Shrimp Soup

I’ve been battling a naaaasty cold over the past few weeks. Coughing, sinusy stuff. Ugh. No fun. And with that cold has come a very strong hankering for soup. This soup helped the cold and made me feel a lot better!

DSC_0329First things first, melt some thai red curry paste in the bottom of a pot.

DSC_0330Add broth. I used no sodium added chicken broth.

DSC_0331Cube up some butternut squash and dice some onions and throw into the pot to simmer until soft.

DSC_0333Once everything is cooked, puree and transfer back to the pot. Here’s where I wish I had an immersion blender. Add the can of coconut milk.

DSC_0334Last steps include adding the shrimp, peas and spinach and cooking until the shrimp is no longer translucent, and the spinach has cooked down.

DSC_0336This beauty is ready to serve!
