Addictive Green Curry of Broccoli Soup

Addictive Green Curry of Broccoli Soup

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.

    I’m running to the shop to grab the few ingredients we’re missing for this. So love your 6-ingredient (or less!) recipes; thank you! The best is the part underneath where you give all of these ideas on how to pimp a dish or tweak it to your liking… I’m a very creative cook who loves to cook with whatever is there, never follow recipes properly, etc… but this is so helpful on busy days when my mind simply doesn’t have the space for mess and “innovation”.

  • As someone who loves both broccoli and Thai food, I was delighted to come across this recipe for Green Curry of Broccoli Soup. The recipe seems simple and easy to follow, and I appreciate the tip about using frozen broccoli to save time on chopping. I’m also intrigued by the suggestion to add almond butter instead of peanut butter – I might have to try that next time! My only question is whether there’s a way to make this soup spicier, as I love my Thai curries with a bit of heat. Overall, thank you for sharing this recipe – I can’t wait to give it a try!
