Every now and then I get a craving for Thai. Today was a busy day and I decided to do a crock-pot meal. I love returning home to a cooked meal. I used what I had to create Paleo Thai Soup. I love simple and easy…this recipe is just that! The key to success is to plan ahead! If you know your schedule will be busy, find a simple meal to make. I find simple meals often happen in the crock-pot at our house.
I want to share a little crock-pot tip. I will put my meals in our crock-pot and use a light timer to have it go on and off at the correct time. I think I picked my timer up for $2 at IKEA. It is a cheap and easy trick to help make my life easier!
Paleo Thai Soup
Serves 4-6Ingredients 6 cups chicken broth 1 cup coconut milk (from can) 2 limes (juice) 2 cups cooked cubed/shredded chicken 1 cup pea-pods (cut ends off) 2 Tbsp Thai red curry paste (you can add another Tbsp if you like ‘spicy’) 2 Tbsp Thai fish sauce 1 tsp fresh grated ginger Directions: 1. Place chicken broth, lime juice, coconut milk, ginger, Thai paste and fish sauce in crock-pot and whisk together. 2. Add in chicken and pea-pods. 3. Cook on low for 5-6 hours or high for 2-3. *If you don’t have pea-pods in season, I have used broccoli instead.*
