Massaman curry is my FAVORITE food to order out at Thai places, so I knew I had to try this soup version. This recipe is PHENOMENAL as a base, but is definitely one made even better by adding your own spin! I personally like my soup a little thicker, so I added cornstarch to give it a little more heft. I also wanted it to be a touch sweeter, so I added a few tablespoons of brown sugar to achieve that, and it was a HIT!!! Next time, I am going to try this with stir-fry veggies and tofu instead. THANK YOU FOR THIS RECIPE!!!

Wonderfully easy and flavorful. Made this tonight without protein, but with homemade bone broth instead of vegetable broth, and one leek and 2 cups of fresh snow peas, because I did not have any sprouts. Added 1 tbl of Red Boat fish sauce at end and squeezed fresh lime juice into each bowl. My husband, who professed to be tired of my Thai soup obsession, had second bowl. I was happy to find a recipe that did not use sugar! Next batch will be doubled.

Delicious! So much flavor. I used chard instead of Bok Choy, which my market didn’t have that day, and threw in a handful of snap peas as well. Would be delicious with shredded chicken or tofu for a different protein. Will definitely be making this again!
