Red Curry Soup with Rice & Purple Kale

IMG_6385

I’m back after a week away to celebrate two lovely ladies (+1 baby boy)! I was able to hang with dear friends & make new friends! Overall it was a stellar time –  from a pink hummer limo to a vaccination seminar (yes, I conquered both activities on this trip)!

Anywho…I came back from the sunshine state to a burst of colder weather in Boston. Not going to lie, I welcomed it (is that wrong?)! The cold & rainy weather inspired me to whip up a warm soup with a little bit of spice & alot of veggies! Movie night anyone?

Lets get to it…

  1. Grab a large pot, add in 1T EVOO & 1 diced small onion – sauté til translucent
  2. Once translucent add 3 cloves minced garlic & 1T minced ginger – sauté for 1minute
  3. In the same pot combine: 3/4C basmati rice, 6C veggie broth & 1t salt – bring to boil
  4. While waiting to boil peel & cut 1 large sweet potato and tear 1 head of purple kale into bite size pieces – set aside
  5. Once boiling, lower heat to simmer & stir in: 2-3T red curry paste (depends how much spice you want, I added 3T), sweet potato & purple kale – cook for 15minutes or til potato is tender
  6. Remove from heat & stir in 1 can coconut lite, 1T agave syrup & juice of 1 lime

Serve hot & top with a swirl of Sriracha sauce to add more spice!!
