Easily the best way to warm up – Curry Coconut Noodle Soup
Last week before jetting off to NYC, we went out to my favorite Thai restaurant Jitalda. For those of you who don’t live in LA, it’s the best Thai in the city and it’s WAY out there in East Hollywood. AKA it’s a trek to make it out there, but it’s worth every minute of fighting traffic.
We always go to town when we get there and order a handful of things to split. This past time we had a coconut curry soup that was spicy AF. I must have downed 4 glasses of water but it was worth it. I’ve taken some liberty with what I think the recipe might have been and put my own Gaby spin on it. AKA it’s not going to burn your face off and I added noodles because it’s always the right thing to do. It’s an incredible broth that doesn’t take too long to whip up, and then you just load it up with all sorts of herbs to give it that bright finish. And if you want to add some extra protein, you could easily add some shredded rotisserie chicken or poached shrimp to this and call it a day. Also Heather made a version recently and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it so HERE WE GO!
