I love to play with flavors, as you know if you follow along with my food travels. Lately I have been trying different things with soups. Trying to bring lots of flavor and depth to the broth is so fun. This latest creation is pulling the flavors of curry, lemongrass, ginger and coconut milk into a potsticker based soup. Curried Potsticker Soup has a delicious aroma and depth of flavor that will knock your socks off – perfect for a cold winter day.
For this soup, I used chicken broth and pork potstickers for my version. You can use beef broth, chicken potstickers, really whatever you have on hand or access to. But the beauty of this recipe is that you can use vegetable broth and vegetable potstickers to serve up on a #meatlessmonday or for the vegetarian in your family. The real star though is the lemongrass and the red curry paste. They mix and mingle so well with the coconut milk and broth to make a silky soup for the potstickers and spinach.
If you haven’t given naan a chance yet, this is the perfect soup to try it with. Naan is an Indian flat bread that is traditional light dough fried on both sides. I chose to warm mine up in the oven, then brush melted butter mixed with red pepper flakes, garlic powder and parsley. It is perfect for dipping in the curried broth.
