What is this? An actual recipe instead of a sweet? I know, I know – things have been definitely leaning towards the sweet side around here lately, and I still have a few to go before Christmas. But, we have been eating real food as well!!

This soup was another find from one of the magazines I flipped through while at my grandma’s house awhile back. And yes, it’s another recipe I decided to try out since my husband is not here, since Thai flavors are some of those flavors that my husband doesn’t care for. I really am getting my fill while we are apart!!

This soup smelled so good when I was making it. In fact, I called up my sister and told her how good it was going to be because it smelled so good! But I have to be honest – when I had my first bite, I felt a little bit let down. It didn’t have the “wow” that I was looking for, the “wow” that I smelled while it was cooking. My sister stopped by and tried it, and thought it was missing something as well.

Well, I couldn’t leave it alone! I knew it had potential, and I wanted to see what I could do with it. Turns out that it wasn’t missing much. I added some extra curry paste, and bam – all of a sudden, it turned from ok to amazing!! I would add a little extra coconut milk next time, because it was still a bit thick and I think it would boost the flavor as well, but besides that, I think it was perfect!

The recipe below has my addition of the extra curry paste, and a suggestion for more coconut milk. If you like Thai flavors, you will love this soup!!

    I made this soup today and it was delicious! I added an extra tablespoon of red curry paste because my husband and I LOVE heat! Very nice change from the usual sweet butternut soups I’ve tasted. Plus, I got to use my new Vitamix I received for Christmas! Yay! Thank you for posting this fantastic recipe.
