Reviews forCoconut Curry Chicken Soup
"Barbara, you missed the instructions near the end: "top servings with vegetables, basil and cilantro.""
"Good but it was missing something. Can't put my finger on it but definitely needed something else - maybe ginger? Salt? More basil and cilantro? Anybody else thinking the same?"
"I used coconut milk that I buy in the half gallon for my smoothies. It was fine. I cut the brown sugar in half as I don't like sweet HOT food but it was very good."
"Excellent. ... I've made this several times since I found this recipe. I can't get over how easy it is to make and how delicious it is. I've added a variety of vegetables to the broth mixture...just to add color. Definitely on my favorite foods to eat list."
"There is a lack of instruction. Please check that. Nothing about the vegetables being added. I added the vegetables after adding the spices. I had two spoonfuls of the soup. Ummmmm good!"
"Hello. Red curry paste is not available in my country. How do i replace it?"
"My biggest problem with this recipe is HOW CAN I STOP EATING IT??? I halved the recipe, since I'm cooking for myself, and I was doubting whether the five star reviews were for real. I did my best to make the recipe "as is." I used half fish sauce and half soy sauce. I didn't have chicken on hand, so I used some cubes of steak. As is, it is delicious, but then I realized I was missing a ginger flavor which I love, so I added some finely sliced pickled ginger along with the sliced fresh cabbage. So delicious. I also followed one reviewers suggestion to substitute bean sprouts for the noodles. I used 2/3 noodles and 1/3 bean sprouts. However, afterwards I was twirling up noodles and dipping them in the pot of soup, while standing at the kitchen sink. The only reason I stopped eating was to write this review! ??"
"I love this soup when it starts getting cooler outside. I make it exactly as written and it's perfect for me."
"Delicious! My family loved it. Will make this again and again!"
"This was so delicious. Used a seafood mix of mussels and squid. Can't wait to make again."
