Spicy green curry veg soup with mini chilli and black pepper popadums

This is a soup that literally can be made in 10 mins from start to finish .. It’s really healthy, really tasty, filling and low on calories … Make a big pan and portion to eat for the week or freeze into portions….you can use any veg you have in your fridge/ freezer but I am using …

Ingredients
Green beans
Broad beans
Chestnut mushrooms
Cherry tomatoes
2 spring onions
Garden peas
Two cans of coconut milk
A heaped dessert spoon of green curry paste ( you can also make this from scratch which I will show you in another recipe)
4 cloves of garlic
Half a red sliced chilli
1/4 teaspoon dried chilli flakes
1 kafir lime leaf

Method

Put everything in the pan – bring to the boil then summer for ten mins and blend

Whilst your soup is cooking deep fry your mini popadums ( I will show you how to make these in another recipe)
Shop bought or homemade … Whichever you have time for ..
The main thing is – making your own healthy meals quickly and easily .. You cannot beat the health benefits or taste from eating freshly made soups ( or any other meals)

Coconut milk/ water is very good for you if you are pregnant and it is also a natural fat buster .. It’s a superfood!!
