My Easy Paleo Red Curry Soup is a simple way to use up your leftovers.
I spent a lazy Sunday morning in bed, watching the latest episode of Iron Chef America (Morimoto vs. Pasternack in Battle Wreckfish). Apparently wreckfish is a pretty rare, enormous, disgustingly-oogly eyed fish that frequents old abandoned shipwrecks, hence the name.
Anyhow, Morimoto made pho with fish noodles, and the entire day all I wanted to eat was a steaming hot bowl of soup!
As evening approached and my will to cook something up started to fade, I decided to make a curry soup that literally took 5 minutes to prepare.
(Granted, I did have all the veggies and meat leftover.)
This would be a great dish to make on a mid-week night when you’re pressed for time and want to give your leftovers a little flair.
The spaghetti squash was a great noodle-y substitute and the red curry paste gave just the right amount of spice! This served one very hungry gal so you can adjust the quantities to your appetite.
