Alright y’all. This is it. I bet right about now you’re having some serious soup envy, but SOUPer news friends… I’m sharing this recipe with you so you can easily make this amazing Baby Bok Choy + Shiitake Red Curry Soup too!
The base of this delicious soup consists of red curry paste and vegetable stock. Now if you’re like me, you’ve never cooked with red curry paste before and I think you’ll be shaking your head at why the heck not! It’s so fragrant and flavorful, it really has crept up on my list of favorite condiments. The amazing thing about red curry paste is- because it’s so flavorful in itself, you don’t really need to add many other spices to this soup. So not only is it yummy, it also will make your soup life a life a little easier. Let’s take a closer look at what abundant goodness I added in this soup and how easy it is to throw together, shall we?!
So I know it looks like there is a lot going on here, and there kind of is, but I promise it’s one of the least complicated recipes (just how I like all my recipes). I re-created this Baby Bok Choy + Shiitake Red Curry Soup as my own version of Lauren Caris Cooks’ Coconut Curry Ramen Noodles with Marinated Mushrooms. She was giving me a serious case of soup envy, so I wanted to jump right in and create a similar soup staple. So in my version, we have:
⤐ shiitake mushrooms
⤐ crispy tofu
⤐ baby bok choy
⤐ coconut milk
⤐ red curry paste
⤐ edamame noodles
⤐ vegetable stock
⤐ vegetable potstickers
⤐ cilantro + sesame seeds (for garnishing)
Now the potstickers are really a great addition, but if you can’t find them, this soup would be just as delicious without them. I mean, I have 3 hungry guys to feed over here (my hubby, my dad, and my son!) so I wanted to “beef” it up a bit.
note: there was no beef involved at.all lol
And if you’re a mushroom fan already, these marinated shiitake mushrooms are gonna knock your socks off! They might be my favorite part of this Baby Bok Choy + Shiitake Red Curry Soup, so don’t skip ’em. And if you cannot find edamame noodles, any rice noodles will do. The baby bok choy was super easy because it easily fits in the bowls, but you could also get the mama bok choy and simply cut into bite-sized pieces. Ok! Ok! Let’s just get to the recipe already!
