Thai Turkey Soup: A Post-Thanksgiving Favorite

Thai Turkey Soup

One of my favorite Post-Thanksgiving recipes…

Thai Turkey Soup

There are numerous Thai soup recipes. Soup is eaten almost daily, as an accompaniment to a Thai meal. Unlike in the West, it is not served as a first course, but is served with all the other dishes on the table.

In Thailand, at a family-style meal, everyone shares from the serving bowl, by spooning some of the soup into his own spoon.

Thai soups are not only easy to make, but also healthy. Bok choy, turmeric, fish sauce, and fresh chilies are common ingredients.

Cooking time is short, unlike soup recipes from other parts of the globe. With shorter cooking time, vitamins are retained and preparation time is reduced.

Active Time:15 min.

Total Time: 30 min.

1 cup coconut milk​
1 tbsp. curry powder
1/2 tsp. ground turmeric​
1 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth*
1 tbsp. Tiparos brand fish sauce​
1 cup macaroni pasta, cooked
10 oz. turkey breast (see 1a)​
1 Thai red chili,(opt.)
2 green onions​
1 baby bok choy

*We recommend “Better Than Bullion” Chicken Base

Mise en Place:

Dice turkey, slice green onions. Cook macaroni, chop bok choyand chili (optional)

Prepare the Dish:

In a large stockpot, combine coconut milk, curry powder, bokchoy, and turmeric.

Stir in fish sauce, and chicken broth, until well combined.

Stir in turkey and noodles. Warm gently.

Stir in green onions and red chilies right before serving.

Switchable! – If you’re not a fan of Asian flavors, replace the coconut milk, curry paste, and turmeric, for whole milk, “BetterThan Bullion” chicken base, and fresh chopped Italian herbs, respectively, in the same proportions. Maybe double the fresh herbs, to taste.
