This has got to be the absolute BEST soup to warm you up this time of year. First of all, it’s yummy. It’s kind of spicy, but not too spicy. Kind of creamy, but not too thick.

Second of all, it’s easy yet different. If you’re like me, and you’ve eaten nothing but starchy leftovers for the last week, you crave new tastes. The coconut and curry in this soup are the perfect combo because they’re comfort-food-esque but still ethnic — and require no more skill than chopping and boiling.

Third of all — and you knew I was going to say this — it’s healthy. Carrots, cabbage, garbanzo beans, broccoli and peas are the featured veggies. And I sauteed them all in liquid aminos, so there’s no oil. Even the coconut milk is low-fat, so it’s lower in calories and saturated fat than the regular. But still tastes every bit as indulgent.

Ingredients:

1 onion, diced
1 small red pepper (or 1/2 large), chopped
1 cup cabbage, chopped
1 large carrot, chopped
1 small head of broccoli, chopped
1 cup frozen green peas
1 14-oz. can of garbanzo beans
1/4 or 1/2 tsp. red curry paste
1/2 tsp. tumeric
1/2 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. minced ginger
2 large cloves of garlic
4 tbsp. liquid aminos
2 cups of water
1 14-oz. can light coconut milk
1 tbsp. brown sugar (optional)
1 to 2 tsp. fish sauce (optional for taste only)

Directions:

  1. Saute onions and pepper with liquid aminos on medium-high heat until clear.
  2. Add garlic and saute until fragrant, about two minutes.
  3. Add carrots, ginger, spices and cabbage. Saute for five more minutes until veggies soften.
  4. Add water and bring to a boil.
  5. Add brown sugar, coconut milk, broccoli and frozen peas and lower heat so that soup is just simmering.
  6. Simmer for five minutes, or until peas and broccoli are still tender-crisp and serve.
  7. Add fresh lime, fish sauce, cilantro, chopped peanuts and red chili sauce for even more flavor!

TIP: This soup, like many, is even better if you serve it the next day. This makes an 8-serving batch, so you should have plenty leftover to take for lunch.

I really think I’m going to give these a try. Thanks for sharing them.

I’ve have a similar soup with coconut milk and tofu. Delicious and easy to put together.

Michelle, I’d love to try your recipe, too! If you get a chance, please send it, and I’ll add it to this post or to the blog.

What is liquid aminos? Is it essential? I’ve heard of it…is Bragg’s this? Can you get it from a normal grocery store?

Heather,

Bragg Liquid Aminos are made from health-giving, NON-GMO soybeans and purified water. They are an excellent, healthy, gourmet replacement for Tamari and Soy Sauce. They are not fermented or heated and are gluten-free. You can get them at the Hy-Vee Health market for sure or Whole Foods.

If you can’t find them, you can substitute them and the water in the recipe with veggie or chicken broth. Hope that helps!
