Green Curry Soup (Again)

We made green curry soup a few times before, and even posted it once, but I was never that happy with the final outcome. Sometimes the broth was delicious, but didn’t match well with the wontons. Other times the broth was a bit too thick and rich and could have just been curry sauce and not soup. I wasn’t going to post this since we did something like it already, but it came out so great that I had to let you guys know! If you want to make green curry soup, make this one, and not the old one.

Mandi is building the curry paste. This is garlic, ginger, cumin, salt, and pepper.

Here she added some coriander and Thai green chiles.

This is after adding some cilantro. Normally we put basil and lemongrass and a few more ingredients in green curry, but this is a simplified one for the soup.

Ground pork, green onions, salt and pepper for dumplings.

Salt, pepper, and a little flour dusting.

yum.

Swiss Chard.

Fry the paste in a hot pan.

Add hot chicken stock to it. No coconut milk. It made it too rich last time.

These just have the pork and green onion mixture in them. We saved a few chard leaves to hold them.

We had a bunch extra dumplings! These were great the next day with some of the broth.
