Ingredients For This Shrimp Curry Soup
You really don’t need a lot of ingredients to make this coconut curry soup. I used my Mae Ploy curry paste again as it packs a lot of flavor in a just a spoonful.
Of course I used coconut milk and for the broth I also tried Better that Bouillon vegetable base for a change. I love their products but I usually use chicken and beef bases so the vegetable was a new purchase.
For the vegetables I used radishes, mushrooms, green onions, carrots and cilantro. Lastly I added a little Swerve brown sugar sweetener and a squeeze or two of lime to balance the flavors.
Other Low Carb Recipes Using Thai Curry Paste

Thai Coconut Curry Soup Recipe
You can make this recipe very quickly. In a soup pan, you can add your Better than Bouillon vegetable base, curry paste, Swerve, coconut milk, salt and water and then whisk to combine. Once that heats up add in the vegetables and simmer for just a few minutes.
Then add in the raw shrimp and once it starts to turn pink you are almost done. Just squeeze in your lime and mix in the cilantro leaves and that’s it!
This was really full of flavor and tasted even better the next day though I must say the shrimp will get tough if you keep reheating it. I took out the shrimp, heated up the soup in the microwave and then added the shrimp back in to keep it from getting too rubbery. Enjoy!
