What is curry?
Traditionally, curry is an Indian dish that packs a lot of exciting flavors. Vegan curry is made with red curry paste, coconut milk, chickpeas, and fresh veggies like sweet potatoes and spinach.
I love red curry, which is why I wanted to switch it up and make it into a warming soup for the wintertime.
What’s in this soup?
The base of the soup is made with vegetable broth and red curry.
In addition, it has red curry paste and almond milk to give the delicious red curry flavor, and to add a little extra nutty zing, peanut butter, and lime juice.
This soup is loaded with veggies like sweet potatoes, red bell peppers, onions, and brussel sprouts. And as for spices, all you need is ginger and some garlic.
How to make Vegan Red Curry Soup?
This vegan red curry soup is a breeze to make. First, you’ll need to roast your sweet potatoes and red bell peppers in the oven for about 20 minutes at 400 degrees.
While that is roasting, you can saute the garlic and onions until translucent. Add in the red curry paste and stir until the garlic and onions are fully covered.
Once the roasted veggies are done, add them to the pot along with the vegetable broth, almond milk, peanut butter, ginger, salt, and brussels sprouts.
Give it a good stir and let it simmer for about 10 minutes. After that, take your immersion blender (or put about half of the soup in a regular blender) and puree ‘til about half the soup is smooth.
Separate it into bowls and garnish with fresh cilantro and peanuts for that final touch.
