Superfoods Soup

When I come across a new song I like I do this thing where I listen to it over and over. Anyone else? This Post Malone song is kind of my song right now; it’s just so fun and catchy! I used it in my Highlighted Instagram Stories where you can find the step by step process for making this Superfoods soup!

Things that make this Superfoods soup super:

  • Mineral Rich & immune boosting (hello nourishing sweet potatoes, chickpeas and kale!)
  • Contains natural antiviral properties (thanks, coconut milk!)
  • Anti-inflammatory (the superpowers of curry powder!)


  • So easy and quick to make, perfectly suitable for a weeknight dinner
  • Freezes really well and makes for an even easier weeknight meal later
  • Leftover soup is delicious over rice to switch things up


This soup is another recipe from the ‘Run Fast, Cook Fast, Eat Slow’ cookbook. We had it first at my sister in law’s house where I’m always amazed by her kid’s eating habits! Her little third grader ate all of his soup and said ‘Mom, that was awesome’. We didn’t have Hailey with us that day, but I doubt she would have made the same comment. Of course, that’s only because she wouldn’t even try this soup! I have a feeling some of you can relate, #pickyeaters ๐Ÿ™‚


We’ve still been on a soup kick lately here in Ohio where Winter may never truly end. We see the light at the end of the tunnel every now and then, but the snow always seems to return. And when there’s not snow or ice, there’s a random wind storm we can thank for our first experience of losing power in the country!

Luckily, it was only out for about 6 hours. It happened overnight. I woke up around one something and the house was Silent which is just weird!! We only have a small generator right now so we hooked it up to the fridge and sump pump and stayed tucked under our blankets, animals included, until the power came back on around 6:30 AM. We had to prioritize and save the food first and foremost, especially since that was the day I made a big batch of this soup and had gone grocery shopping. The grocery store that’s just a few miles from our home actually lost power while I was there so continuing to shop and fill my cart in the now dimly lit store may not have been the most wise decision of the day!

At any rate, we’re back to snow today and it looks like highs in the 20’s this week so if you’re in the same boat I suggest cozy blankets, entertaining movies and big bowls of soup to make it a little more tolerable!

    I love all these ingredients, and together in a soup makes it so comforting and cozy. This looks great!

  2. I love sweet potato and curry powder in soups – this soup had so much flavour! So many healthy ingredients and love how easy it is to make!

    I love all of these flavors and so many vegetables! Yum, we’re going to be eating this one again and again in our house!

  4. Do you have any thought about using curry paste instead of curry powder? I know curry paste is often used in Thai recipes that have coconut milk. Any thoughts?

      Hi There! I’m not sure the two are all that interchangeable, but I always encourage experimenting ๐Ÿ™‚
      A couple things to keep in mind…the flavors of each will be different as the ingredients are not the same (I don’t think the paste has the turmeric base like the powder does) and I believe paste will be spicier than powder. The measurements will likely be different too so I would check what one Tbsp of powder translates to in paste. Keep me posted if you make a Thai version of this soup to let me know how it turns out!!

        Thanks. You are right, they are not interchangeable. I decided to cut the recipe in half and make both versions. They both turned out well, but I prefer the curry paste. The color of the soup is more appealing and I like the flavor better, it’s like a Thai Panang Red Curry dish. I used 1 Tbsp of red curry paste for half the recipe and the flavor was mild. I highly recommend trying this version!

        Thanks for reporting back!! So glad to hear it turned out well with the paste; I will definitely give that a try! Do you have a certain Curry paste (brand) you like to use?

      • Pattis

        Hey! I buy Thai Kitchen brand and itโ€™s easy to find in any major grocery store. Let me know if you try it!
