My husband and I may or may not have packed on the Covid 19 haha. We are buckling down and doing a program that is really helping us eat healthier and eat less. As a result, I’m also getting creative with my cooking. A friend Ali, introduced me to a healthy recipe similar to this. I’m notorious for adding to recipe. This recipe is DELICIOUS! It’s a super healthy recipe and if you are vegetarian can easily be made that way by using vegetable broth, skipping the chicken and adding tofu.
This soup has a little heat to it because of the red curry. I added the extra curry powder to have more curry taste without the heat. We’re kind of wimps in my house. My husband adds ketchup to his tacos…seriously. This zoodle soup will keep you warm during this cold winter!
- 1/2 cup thinly sliced yellow onions
- 2 stocks celery chopped
- 1/2 cup mushrooms chopped
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 4 tsp fresh ginger
- 1.5 tsp fresh garlic, minced
- 4 cups chicken broth
- 4 tsp red curry paste
- 1 tsp curry powder
- 24 oz cooked chicken
- 1 can Rotel fire roasted diced tomatoes with green chilies
- 1 yellow bell pepper sliced thinly
- 1 red bell pepper sliced thinly
- 1 package of frozen spiralized zucchini
- 1 cup sugar snap peas
- 1 can lite coconut milk
- 1 tbsp lime juice
- 1/2 cup green onions
First get a soup pot hot and heat oil, then add onions, celery, and mushrooms and saute for a few minutes. Next add in ginger and garlic and cook until fragrant. After you can smell the onions, garlic and ginger add in chicken broth, red curry paste, and curry powder and stir until combined. Add in cooked chicken (I sliced thinly and boiled in chicken broth for 15 minutes) and Rotel and let boil for 10 minutes. Add in peppers, zoodles, and sugar snap peas and let simmer for 15-20 minutes. After the soup simmers add in coconut milk, lime juice and green onions and get the soup back up to boiling. Now it’s time to eat!

I like to store extra soup in quart size jars. It heats up awesome! If you don’t have a canning funnel I highly recommend it! It makes it getting the soup in the jars mess free. I store all my soups in these jars and even freeze in them (just make sure you get the soup cold first before freezing)
