VEGAN / GREEN GOODNESS / EASY-PEASY
A QUICK + EASY HEALTHY DINNER. JUST THROW EVERYTHING IN THE POT, COOK, AND BLITS, TA-DA!

This is another one of our weekly staples. There's something so wholesome and nourishing about a good pot of soup! I like making a soup after the weekend when we've maybe overindulged a bit and I can feel my body needs a comforting soup hug! 


This soup is packed with greens and all my favourite Thai flavours. It's also super simple and quick to make. Just throw it all together and blitz. 


TIP 01 / Use Frozen Broccoli if that's easier, cheaper or faster. 


TIP 02 / If you want to add some more Green Goodness you can add a 2-3 handfuls of Baby Spinach or 1-2 cups of Frozen Spinach or even some Kale...all greens are welcome! ;)

  4. Add the Stock Water.

  5. If you're using the Curry Paste, you can add that now. (Optional)

  6. Add the Coconut Milk.

  7. The liquid should almost cover the vegetables. You can add more water if you think it needs more liquid.

  8. Put the lid on and bring to a boil. Simmer for 10 - 15 minutes or until the Broccoli is cooked.

  9. Once cooked, remove from the heat and let it cool down slightly.
