Thai-Style Green Curry Soup - Pinch of Nom Slimming Recipes

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card below. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb!

The perfect pick-me-up for when you’re feeling under the weather (or for when the weather is cold and miserable!) this is our Thai-inspired twist on classic chicken noodle soup. 

The creamy combination of coconut milk, zingy lime and warming spices is guaranteed to warm you up on a rainy day. We’ve used ginger, chilli and garlic, along with lemongrass and a splash of fish sauce to recreate the flavours of the popular Thai-style takeaway dish.

With filling chicken breast and rice noodles in the mix too, this is a hearty soup that’ll leave you feeling satisfied for just 116 calories per serving – so make sure you serve it with a wholemeal bread roll to mop up every last drop of flavour! We always finish ours with a drizzle of sriracha sauce over the top for a pop of fiery heat, but you can always leave this off if you’re not a big fan of spicy food. 

One of the best things about this recipe is how well it stands up to freezing and reheating. Ideal for batch cooking, you can save leftover portions in the fridge or freezer to see you through on busier days.

What diets is this Thai-Style Green Curry Soup suitable for? 

Our Thai-Style Green Curry Soup can be enjoyed on dairy-free diets and it can be made gluten free, as long as you substitute the chicken stock pot for a suitable gluten-free alternative. 

If you’re cooking for people with allergies, please be extra careful when checking ingredients and preparing food!
