Ingredients

1
leek, or 1 onion
2 tbsp
yellow Thai curry paste
1 tbsp
grated ginger
900-ml carton
chicken or vegetable broth
400-ml can
coconut milk, preferably regular
1 tbsp
granulated sugar, or honey
350-g pkg
tofu, preferably extra-firm
340-g pkg
fresh or frozen vegetable stir-fry mix, about 4 cups

Instructions

  • Slice and discard dark green top and root end from leek. Then slice in half lengthwise. Fan out and rinse under cold running water to remove any grit, then thinly slice. If using an onion, chop. Lightly oil a large pot. Set over medium. Add leek, curry paste and ginger. Stir continuously until leek begins to soften slightly, about 2 min.
  • Pour in broth and coconut milk. Stir in sugar. Bring to a boil over high, about 5 min. Meanwhile, slice tofu into bite-sized cubes. If using fresh stir-fry mix, cut any large vegetables into bite-sized pieces. When broth boils, add tofu and vegetables. Reduce heat, cover and simmer, stirring occasionally until vegetables are tender, 5 to 8 min. Taste and add salt, if you like.

  1. The amount of tofu is too much for the size of the broth. I would cut it in half. Next time I would sautéed the tofu with the leeks to catch a little flavour and firm it up a bit more.

  2. This soup is fabulous! Kick it up a notch though with Thai chili garlic sauce for heat, a little fish sauce for salt and some green onion. It was delicious!
