Sweet Pea & Potato Curry Soup


Sweet Pea & Potato Curry Soup

Julie Pace, RDN
This one pot Sweet Pea & Potato Soup with Jasmine rice is creamy, filling, nutritious and delicious. This recipe is packed with good-for-you ingredients like sweet peas, sweet potatoes, curry, cumin, fresh garlic, sweet onions, and coconut milk. It's so easy to make and it's ready to eat in 30 minutes or less.
When the fall & winter season comes around, this is one of my favorite soups to make. You can double the recipe and store in the fridge for up to 5 days making this soup a great meal prep recipe.
A few tips you'll want to remember when making this soup: You'll want to diced the potatoes into small bite-sized pieces and finely chop the garlic and onions. As with most recipes, you'll want to taste and adjust the seasonings to your personal preferences. You can swap the full fat coconut milk for the lighter version, if desired.

You can easily substitute the sweet peas for another plant protein like chickpeas, if you’d like. Jasmine rice is a high glycemic carbohydrate, so if you have pre-diabetes or diabetes, you will want to be mindful of this.
It’s important to note that all curry powders are not the same. Curry powder is a complex mix of different spices and no two recipes are the same.
