Vegetable curry soup is made with a few simple ingredients. In light of this, it can be whipped up in a few minutes. I usually make it up for lunch on cool, rainy days as the smell of curry is warm and inviting. This dish is meatless, so it’s a great recipe for vegetarians. If you and your friends are curry lovers, make up a big batch and invite them over. This vegetable curry soup is also nice served up with your favorite bread and a nice glass of red wine or beer.
The tips to making this recipe are as follows: First, you can use mild, medium, or strong curry depending on how powerful you like it. Personally, I prefer mine a little on the mild side. If you’re in Asia or have access to fresh coconut milk, by all means use it. The stuff the in can works just fine, as well. It’s best to use a medium head of cauliflower so it doesn’t crowd out the mixed veggies. If the soup is a little too watery, you can certainly add more cauliflower and mixed vegetables. Don’t let the cauliflower simmer for much more that 10 minutes or it will be too soft and mushy. I use frozen mixed vegetables simply because they are convenient. If you have the time and energy, however, you can cut up your own carrots, peas, and corn. You can also add other vegetables depending on how you like your vegetable curry soup.
