While I tend to prefer fresh broccoli, this Green Curry of Broccoli Soup is also great made with frozen broccoli florettes. Just pop the frozen broccoli straight in the pan – it shouldn’t take much longer to cook and will save you the chopping step. To make this soup in under 10 minutes, boil water in the kettle to speed things along. When chopping the broccoli, I like to finely slice most of the stems and add them to the pot so I minimize the wastage.
Addictive Green Curry of Broccoli Soup
- 3– 4 tablespoons Thai green curry paste
- 1 can coconut milk 400mL / 1 1/2cups
- 2 heads broccoli
- 3 tablespoons peanut butter
Heat a large saucepan on a high heat. Add a few tablespoons of cream from the top of the coconut milk or some oil. Stir fry the curry paste for 15-30 seconds or until you notice the aroma. Be careful not to burn.
Quickly add 2 cups water and the coconut milk. Bring to a simmer. Chop broccoli into bight sized trees and add to the pot. Bring back to a simmer and cook uncovered for 8-9 minutes or until the broccoli is tender.
Remove from the heat. Stir in the peanut butter. Taste and season with a little salt or sugar before serving.
