5 Ingredient Thai Broccoli Soup

5 Ingredient Thai Broccoli Soup

Green on green on green.


Seriously – you can make this broccoli soup with only 5 ingredients. Me being the way that I am couldn’t help but add a squeeze of lime, a garnish of parsley, squeeze of sriracha, but you don’t have to.

I made this soup last night and it was almost as easy as heating up a box/can of soup. I went for a run, came home and started the soup, let it simmer while I showered, and after I showered I pureed it and it was ready.


What’s the one kitchen tool I can’t live without? Especially in the winter? My immersion blender. I use it every other day I feel like for soups, dressings, pasta sauces. And it is not that expensive… I use this one…

Anyone watch the national championship last night?


I’m embarrassed to admit – I watched The Bachelor instead. I’m just not in the football mindset anymore.

But anyway I heard it was a good game. Living in Birmingham as a non-Alabama is rough (and obnoxious) but congrats to them (again).


Make this 5 ingredient, under 30 minute, velvety, spicy, gingery, comforting, very healthy broccoli soup.

5 Ingredient Thai Broccoli Soup


  • 3 tbs green curry paste
  • 1 can full fat coconut milk
  • 2 tsp ginger, chopped
  • 3 cups broccoli
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 2-2 1/2 cups water (or vegetable or chicken stock/broth)
  • Other optional ingredients:
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • Salt & pepper, to taste (little salt is needed due to curry paste)
  • Sriracha, for serving
  • Parsley, for serving


  1. In a stock pot heated over medium heat, add green curry paste and thick part of the coconut milk. Let heat until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes.
  2. Add remaining coconut milk, ginger, broccoli and water or broth. Bring up to a boil.
  3. Once boiling, turn heat to low and let simmer about 15-20 minutes, until broccoli softens.
  4. Once broccoli has cooked well, add the spinach and let wilt.
  5. Using an immersion blender or transfer to another blender, puree the soup until desired consistency. I pureed the soup entirely, leaving no chunks.
  6. At the end, I added the juice of two limes, pepper and very little salt
  7. When serving, I like to drizzle with sriracha and add a little parsley/cilantro/whatever you have on hand. This is optional.
