Coconut Cashew Basil Curry Soup
Creamy, rich, flavorful and healthy…definitely recommend making this soup! It is also freezer-friendly.
- 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts diced
- 1/2 tsp garlic salt
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 1 yellow onion quartered
- 1 tbsp garlic minced
- 1 tsp fresh ginger minced or grated
- 1/2 jalapeno pepper
- 2 14 oz cans of coconut milk
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 2 tbsp curry powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
- 1 1/2 tsp dried basil
- 1/2 cup salted roasted cashews
- fresh cilantro (optional) chopped
- small fresh basil leaves (optional)
- jalapeno pepper (optional) sliced
Chicken Cooked In The Wok:
Dice up the 2 lbs of chicken and sprinkle it with garlic salt.
Heat up the wok over high heat and add the vegetable oil. Cook the chicken in small batches for 4 minutes. The meat should no longer be pink and have a slight crisp to the edges. When the chicken is finished, put it on a plate and set it aside.
Ingredients For The Food Processor or use a hand mixer:
Gather the ingredients for the food processor: onion, garlic, ginger, jalapeno, coconut milk, chicken broth, curry powder, salt & pepper.
First, add the onion, garlic, ginger, and jalapeno and blend on high until you have a smooth consistency.
Make It Now
Get out a large saucepan and combine the ingredients from the food processor, add the chicken and add the dried basil.
Heat everything to a boil and then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes.
Make It A Freezer Meal:
Add coconut mixture, chicken and dried basil to a freezer-safe bag and seal it taking out all the air. Label it and put it in your freezer. You can even freeze the cashews in a different bag to have ready and stay fresh.
Thaw and Cook:
Defrost the soup for 12-24 hours in the fridge. Pour contents of the bag into a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes.
Assemble The Soup:
When you are ready to enjoy the soup, put it in bowls and top it with cilantro, fresh basil leaves and jalapeno (all optional) and enjoy!
