Green Curry, Broccoli & Spinach Soup

I tried this soup at Zinque, a restaurant in Newport Beach, CA & not only was it an adorable waterfront restaurant, but I discovered a new found love for Green Curry, Broccoli & Spinach Soup. If you read my “Tips on Balancing a Healthy & Active Lifestyle”, this totally checks off my goal of 1 handful of golden greens!! Plus, it tastes amazing!!! If you like a lot of spice, greens and curry then you’ll love this! I tried my best to replicate it taste comparable so I had to share it with you. Trader Joe’s is usually my go to spot for organic veggies, I feel they have excellent produce, affordable pricing and a lot of their stuff is pre-cut! I found the green curry paste at 99 Ranch Market in Irvine but any Asian market near by will have this.



1 bag of organic broccoli

1 bag of organic spinach

2 whole organic trimmed leeks

4 tbs of organic cilantro

1 small curry paste

1 Tbsp of coconut oil

1 32oz carton of organic chicken broth

1 can of coconut milk



1 1/2 Tbsp of curry powder

2 Tbsp of cumin

1/4 tsp sriracha

2 Tbsp of garlic salt

pepper to taste




  1. In a large pot, bring water to a boil. Steam broccoli for 10 minutes, then set aside.
  2. In a separate pan sauté leeks in coconut oil on low for about 7 minutes.
  3. Trim cilantro (about half) and add to the leeks. Continue to sauté for another 4-5 minutes.
  4. In the large pot boil the spinach for about 1 minute and set aside.
  5. Pour out hot water & combine everything into large pot. Add chicken broth and coconut milk.
  6. Stir everyhting for about 5-10 minutes on low. Add spices.
  7. Set aside and let soup cool for at least 10 minutes.
  8. Pour everything into blender and puree until creamy.
  9. Return to soup pot and enjoy!

I served this over chicken and white rice.
