About

This recipe makes a large pot of soup, great for entertaining. You can cut the recipe in half to make less. Leftovers are great for lunch. Red Curry Paste is very spicy!!! Add the paste gradually to suit your taste. Some like it hot, I start with 1 Tbs. and add some Agave Nectar to balance the flavors.
You can garnish with chopped chives and plain yogurt if desired, but it's great without.
