How to Make Thai Red Curry Noodle Soup


In a dutch-oven, heat oil over medium heat. Add onions, red bell pepper, and carrots. Cook until tender, about 5-7 minutes.


Stir in garlic, ginger, and red curry paste. Cook until fragrant for about 1 minute, stirring frequently.


Add chicken broth, coconut milk, and fish sauce. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Let the mixture come to a simmer. Cook, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Stir in noodles and simmer until tender. Cook time will vary based on the type of noodles. Check the package for directions.


Stir in lime juice and cilantro

Recipe Notes:

Curry Paste: The strength of curry paste varies from brand to brand. I used the Thai Kitchen brand to make this recipe.

Noodles: Ramen or rice noodles work the best in this soup. For ramen noodles, make sure to toss the seasoning if included. For rice noodles, rice stick or pad thai type noodles work great. I do not recommend using ultra-thin noodles, such as vermicelli.
