Paleo, Gluten Free and Dairy Free | ahealthylifeforme.comNow about this incredible soup.  I have been on a huge soup kick over the last few weeks.  It must be my anticipation of the cooler weather.  My husband actually asked if we were ever again going to eat dinner off a plate and not a bowl.  Think that might have been a hint that he wants a big ol’ steak for dinner soon?

If you are new to curry, you need to become familiar.  Curry is made up of numerous spices, one being turmeric which is a huge anti inflammatory.

The shrimp adds a great source of protein, the sweet potatoes complex carbohydrates to supply fiber, and potassium.

I hope you will give this soup a try.  If you do make this recipe, please let me know! Leave a comment below or take a photo and tag me on Instagram or Twitter with #ahealthylifeforme.

    Delicious, perfect thing to make/serve on a snowy night. We upped the amount of green curry and also included a diced red pepper to add color. Great recipe, thank you!

  2. 5 stars
    I made this today for lunch, and for my dad to have for lunch tomorrow. He is on a really restrictive diet for healing right now, and finding foods to cook that actually taste delicious can be tricky. This hit the spot! It’s so flavorful and warming! (Not to mention super healthy)

    A couple additions I made:
    -I added two small cloves garlic extra
    -used fresh grated ginger
    -added 1/4-1/2 Cup canned coconut milk at the very end
    -put 3-4 drops traditional fish sauce at end

    Definitely making this again. Thanks for this simple, fast, flavorful recipe!
