green_curry_noodle_soup It’s been raining here in LA! AND a storm is supposedly coming again which means even more rain! It’s almost as if right now we are having seasons, and it’s awesome. Raining days equal cozy and warm food. For that, I always turn to soup or pasta, which makes this Green Curry Noodle soup just perfect because its noodles and soup. Although this soup is really filling, it still feels light which I love because as soon as the weather turns a bit cold my body goes into carb loading mode. What are your favorite cold weather recipes to make?

    Perfect idea! Not sure if I’ll have time to do the curry paste, but I’m definitely making a copy cat of this with jar curry paste. Thanks for the inspiration! Stay warm :-)

    Oh my goodness- thanks for the recipe! I made the curry paste (using fish sauce, no shallots, and a jalapeño rather than Serrano). I’m freezing the extra paste on a tray in tablespoon-sized dollops which I’ll later transfer to a bag. I went a little crazy with mushrooms at the supermarket- so I used king oyster, enoki, and shiitake mushrooms in the soup. I used a homemade vegetable broth, but other than that I followed the recipe and it turned out beautifully. It’s the perfect treat for a rainy and chilly Sunday, and I can’t wait to eat my leftovers for lunch this week.
