Creamy Broccolini Green Curry Soup

I’m so excited about this new Creamy Broccolini soup recipe! It’s perfect for these winter months, and it couldn’t be easier to put together. As a vegetable enthusiast and soup lover, I wanted to make a soup that was quick but filled with lovely flavors. The combination of the broccolini, green curry, and lime makes for an absolutely delicious final product.

In the summer I love to do a Creamy Asparagus soup or something like my Summer Green Soup, so I wanted to create a winter take on it. This soup is packed with greens, so even though it’s a light soup, it’s absolutely satiating.

A soup like this is made great by a homemade stock. I am passionate about stocks, and while you can use store-bought stock, I love making my own. I think it celebrates the true joy of cooking and creating a soup. If you’re looking to take the soup to the next level, it’s great with smoky pepitas from my cookbook, which by the way, is worth getting the cookbook alone for.

This Creamy Broccolini Green Curry Soup is a triple threat because it’s healthy, delicious, and easy. If you make it, be sure to rate and review the recipe to let me know what you think. And if you want to follow along, head to Instagram and Pinterest for more inspiration!

2 celery stalks chopped

1 pound broccolini

2 cups spinach

½ cup sliced scallions

Constantly stirring from the bottom to the top to cover the broccolini with onions and celery, continue for cooking for 3 minutes.

  1. Beautiful display of your pottery Teri!!!! I am going to make the soup this weekend!!!!

    1. I can’t wait to see what you think and be sure to reach friday favorites because it’s all about soup

  2. Getting ready to make this deliciousness on this cold Chicago Saturday! ??

  3. Delicious!! The only change that I made was adding the whole can of coconut milk. I wonder if substituting broccoli would be ok.

    1. Yes absolutely you can add the whole can … This is the beautiful thing about the soup it’s just a jumping off point. For myself I think that broccolini is so much more delicious than broccoli so I wouldn’t myself but I think it would be great to try and if someone wants it thinner or thicker they can add more or less chicken stock… Would be lovely with rice on the bottom

  4. Another excellent recipe, foolproof, fast, easy, and soooo tasty. I used the whole can of coconut milk by mistake because I wasn’t paying attention… but it turned out great anyway. I also made the smoked pepitas as a topping and that takes it to another level- highly recommend following that suggestion by Teri. The perfect delicious, comforting dinner for a cold winter night in Chicago!

    1. Donna thanks so much for taking the time to give us feedback… We love it also. People often just do the entire can of coconut milk and it’s absolutely fine… I would be delighted if you would rate the recipe also

      1. I thought I did rate it along with the comment but maybe it didn’t show up? Trying again with this comment (gave it 5 stars!)

      2. Thank you so much… I sure appreciate it

  5. Just made a batch and a half of this– sooooo good!!!! Pretty much followed the recipe exactly as is – but then after blending added a bit more coconut milk and salt. Wondering how this would freeze?

  6. Wow!let’s talk about the layers of flavor in this soup. Absolutely delicious and really takes a vegetable soup from bland to knock your socks off! Loved it. Thank you!

    1. Do you so much… What’s wonderful as you can change it up and use asparagus in spring

    2. thanks so much. And it works well with other greens like asparagus in the spring

  7. This is so delicious, even my guys ate it! I didn’t have curry paste so I used curry powder (2 teaspoons of regular and 1 teaspoon hot) and put a little dollop of Greek yogurt on top! Amazing, thank you.
