Thai Red Curry Coconut Carrot Soup
Curry is kind of a new (ish) thing for me and I absolutely love the flavor that curry can bring to a dish. I have found that I draw toward the red curry more than any of the others. I think it’s the lemongrass and chili flavor I love so much in it. I have been playing around with a classic thai curry soup recipe lately and haven’t quite mastered it yet. I did however, come up with a whole different twist on that soup which is this recipe. I was blown away at how good this was and how much the curry flavor complemented the carrots. I didn’t make this recipe overly spicy so if you want more spice feel free to increase red curry amount and try to not eat the whole pot in one sitting.
