Coconut Curry Noodle Soup

This Coconut Curry Noodle Soup is so delicious with flavours of coconut, green curry, ginger, and lemongrass. Simple to make and ready in under 1 hour!

Hello friends!  How are things in your corner of the world?  Things here are finally getting back to normal since I contracted a man cold.  You know the kind.  It was awful and is taking forever to go away.  But I’m feeling almost normal again so back to business it is.  Just in time for frigid temperatures.  I couldn’t have a cold when it’s like the arctic outside, noooooo I had to have a cold when we had a freak streak of summer temperatures here.  Summer in January?  What is going on?  Anyway, I’m back at it, and back in the kitchen.  I missed feeling normal!

I thought this Coconut Curry Noodle soup recipe would be a perfect recipe to share with you right now.  This soup has all the flavours of Thai food…coconut, green curry, ginger, lemongrass…oh my.  I could eat it for days.

I have been wanting to share this soup recipe with you for ages now, but I had to make sure it was just perfect before I posted it.  So after numerous delicious attempts (tough job but someone has to do it), I think this is it.  Coconut Curry Noodle Soup perfection.  I think the addition of the lemongrass is what makes this soup…oh and the 2 cans of coconut milk.  Are you craving it yet?  A creamy, spicy, slurpy, delicious noodle soup…mmmmmm

Simple and Delicious.

Don’t be intimidated by the list of ingredients, because this soup is very easy to make.  All it takes is a little prep beforehand, then putting it all together is a cinch.  It’s simple enought to make that you can have it ready in 1 hour.  Or if you really want to be prepared, you can prep all the veggies in the morning, buy a roasted chicken from the grocery store and throw it all together at dinner time.  Your family will thank you!

Recipe Tips:

  • Chicken: this recipe calls for 2 cups of cooked shredded chicken. I often use store-bought rotisserie chicken…it’s so flavourful, quick and easy.  But if I have chicken at home that I want to use instead, I will bake 2 chicken breasts in a tin foil package at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
  • Lemongrass: Make sure to take the lemongrass chunks out before you serve the soup. If you love the flavour of lemongrass, feel free to add 2 stalks, chopped.
  • Make Ahead Option: If you want to make this soup ahead of time, just make sure to cook and add the noodles right before you serve it. If you add the noodles too soon they will become too soft.
  • Quick Tip: If you really want to be prepared, you can prep all the veggies in the morning, buy a roasted chicken from the grocery store and throw it all together at dinner time.

    I found your blog thru Pinterest. I was curious what you used on your hearth of your fireplace. Is it slate? We are trying to finish ours. Will you email me and let me know? Thanks so much. I really appreciate it.

      Hi Stacey! Our home builder made the fireplace (we’re actually the second set of home owners so I don’t know much about it). I’m not 100% sure what the stone is, but it appears to be a man-made moulded limestone of some sort. It’s not real stone, but it sure looks like it! I’m sure if you mentioned that to a builder/fireplace expert they would know exactly what direction to point you.

      Sorry I couldn’t be much more of a help! Good luck!

    Just made this soup for the first time, it was DELICIOUS! I used red curry paste instead of green because that’s what I had and cooked the gluten-free Ramen noodles from Costco right in the pot. SO YUMMY, thanks Jo-Anna!
