Paleo Thai Chicken Soup

In my journey to embrace a Paleo lifestyle, I have not varied much in soups.  Primarily sticking to homemade broth based soups with whatever meat and vegetables I may have readily available.  However, as summer turns to fall I found myself yearning for a creamier and heartier soup.  With a coconut milk base, fresh broccoli florets, crimini mushrooms and a Thai inspired flavors, this soup has become a freezer meal favorite.

In a large saucepan over medium heat, heat grapeseed oil.  Add shallots and cilantro to pan and cook until shallots are translucent and softened.  Turn heat to medium high.  Add in chicken stock, coconut milk and agave nectar.  Bring to a simmer.  Once broth reaches a simmer, strain into a clean saucepan, discarding the shallots and cilantro.  Return broth to a simmer over medium high heat, and add in mushrooms and broccoli florets.  Cook until broccoli becomes tender.  Add chicken.  Stir in curry paste, lime juice and fish sauce.  Serve.

Freezing Directions:

Follow directions above.  Allow to cool completely.  Place into quart freezer storage bags.  Label and freeze. To serve:  Thaw.  Reheat in microwave 1-2 minutes.

    Hi there,
    In the ingredient list it asks for cooked chicken but in the instructions it says add chicken and cook until no longer pink. Could we use fresh or cooked chicken?

    This is one of the first recipes I made as part of our first big cook day. It was delicious! I didn’t even know that we were soup fans in this house, and now I realize that we are. This soup converted us.
