Hi, my name is Jessica, and I’m addicted to Pinterest. I know lots of other ladies (and increasingly, men) out there are part of the struggle too. Haven’t heard of Pinterest? It’s a virtual pinboard that allows you to share all kinds of things you find on the internet–recipes, cute outfits, cat pictures, you name it. I would warn you away from it in the interest of your precious free time but…here are my boards. I have actually tried a number of the recipes I’ve pinned, so I decided to blog on one of my favorites to date: Thai Coconut Curry Soup.
The recipe I used is here (see pin here). I modified it based on some hard-to-find ingredients–for example, lemongrass required a trip to the Asian market, and did you know lime leaves cannot be sold in the state of Florida (something about a plant disease that affects citrus trees)? I also subbed some of the chicken breast with some mushrooms I had that needed to be used. Finally, the recipe calls for Thai Curry Paste, but I used Thai Chili Garlic Paste because I like the taste and I keep a bunch in the fridge. So my version may not technically have been a “curry” soup–but it sure was delicious! Recipe after the jump.
