We love this when coming home from work on a cold and rainy day, of which we have many in Vancouver, BC. It adds your favorite comfort foods - soup and pasta - together in an exotic combination! We serve it with bread sticks or garlic bread.

  • Heat butter over medium heat in a saucepan; stir in shallot and saute until translucent, about 3 minutes. Add curry powder; cook and stir until a paste forms, about 1 minute.

  • Pour vegetable broth into curry paste mixture. Stir until curry is dissolved, about 1 minute; bring to a boil. Slowly pour in coconut milk; adjust heat to return soup to a simmer.

  • Stir tomato and jalapeno into soup, simmer 5 minutes more. Stir tortellini into soup; season with salt and pepper.

Cook's Notes:

Dried tortellini can be substituted for fresh tortellini. Green onions can be substituted for shallot.

This will be thin, the consistency of a soup. We like the soup with more liquid, as it is so tasty. I tend to add more broth and coconut milk. Additionally the spice of the soup can be adjusted by increasing or decreasing the amount of curry and jalapenos.

I normally don't alter recipes so much but I was looking for something a little different when I ran into this recipe. I make a curry stew that's similar to this so I decided to leave the coconut milk & tomatoes out due to the similarity of the stew recipe I use. I'm not a fan of spicy so I left out hte jalapeno pepper slices out. I added mushrooms since I had them on hand. I realize this ended up being a different style dish but I was looking for inspiration for a curry dumpling soup I had recently and the coconut milk would have changed the whole thing for me. This was so delicious. Thank you for sharing!

1.6.16 Made exactly as written and then added more curry powder and jalapeños to suit our tastes. You definitely will need the salt and pepper as it really brings out the soup's flavor. This is a very mellow/mild soup with interesting layers of flavor. Garnished with some chopped cilantro and served with some fresh cantaloupe for a nice lunch.

So glad I found this recipe - it's been a -40 Celsius day today in Manitoba and the boyfriend had a cold. This hit the spot! Variations I did: - Used Earth Balance Soy Free Margarine in place of butter - Added 1 package of sliced mushrooms at the stage with the shallots - Added 2 TBSP of curry powder instead of 1 - Added less than a TSP of cayenne powder along with curry powder - Added 1 TBSP of flour to help thicken the soup (added this at time of adding curry powder and cayenne powder - just make sure to stir well to get it all mixed with the shallots and mushrooms) - Added 1 package of baby kale to pot after coconut milk was added - Added canned tomatoes instead of fresh (after baby kale had wilted down) Delicious hearty and will be making this regularly! Thank you for the recipe!

I thought this was a fantastic recipe! I doubled it so I could share with my neighbors. I did not have shallots or jalapenos so I substituted those for minced onion and sriracha/black pepper blend. I also used chicken broth instead of vegetable broth. I ended up putting in an extra tablespoon of curry powder and garam masala seasoning. After adding the tortellini I added shredded coconut and a dash of shredded Asiago after serving. It had the perfect blend of spicy/sweetness I was looking for. Thanks so much for this recipe.

This was delicious! My family all loved it! Will keep in my rotation for sure. I doubled the recipe but used one can of coconut milk only... all I had at home. I also added extra tortellini a whole pint of mushrooms and a 1/2 tsp of cayenne. With the extra tortellini it could use more broth so I'll add more vegetable stock next time. Can't wait to make this again. Great recipe!
