Recipe Ingredients for Lite Thai Curry Soup

2 oz rice noodles
1 tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic
1 1/2 tbsp lemon grass
1 tsp ginger
2 tsp red curry paste
48 oz chicken broth
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp sugar
13 1/2 oz lite coconut milk
1/2 lb shrimp
1 cup mushrooms
10 oz baby spinach
2 tbsp lime juice
1/4 cup cilantro
2 green onions

Recipe Directions for Lite Thai Curry Soup

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add rice noodles and cook until al dente, about 3 minutes. Drain and rinse well with cold water to stop the cooking; set aside.

  2. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in garlic, lemon grass, and ginger; cook and stir until aromatic, 30 to 60 seconds. Add the curry paste, and cook 30 seconds more. Pour in about 1/2 cup of the chicken broth, and stir until the curry paste has dissolved, then pour in the remaining chicken stock along with the soy sauce and sugar. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, partially cover, and simmer 20 minutes.

  3. Stir in coconut milk, shrimp, mushrooms, spinach, lime juice, and cilantro. Increase heat to medium-high, and simmer until the shrimp turn pink and are no longer translucent, about 5 minutes.

  4. To serve, place some rice noodles into each serving bowl and ladle soup on top of them. Garnish each bowl with a sprinkle of sliced green onion.
