"This soup is full of flavor and so healthy! You can adjust the heat by altering the amount of curry paste you use; a little goes a long way. A lemon wedge is the perfect garnish."

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook and stir mushrooms, onion, carrots, and garlic in the hot oil until tender, 5 to 7 minutes.
  2. Pour chicken broth into the saucepan; add basil. Bring broth to a boil, reduce heat to low, place a cover on the saucepan, and simmer until the basil seasons the broth, about 10 minutes.
  3. Stir kale, curry paste, salt, and pepper into the broth; bring to a boil again, reduce heat to low, and simmer until kale softens, about 10 minutes.
  4. Stir shrimp, tomatoes, kidney beans, and lemon juice into broth; cook at a simmer until shrimp is bright pink on the outside and the meat is no longer transparent in the center, about 10 minutes.

My entire family loved this soup. Super healthy and simple to make. I added a couple stalks of celery just because it was on hand. I think next time i will add a few more cups of Kale. Great way...

Delicious and so good for you. I used only 1 can of tomatoes as I ran out of room in the pot and I think it's fabulous. Also, not sure it needs the beans...they're not bad but I don't know that ...

Used curry powder. Couldn’t find paste. A little more shrimp and added a couple stalks celery just because. Big hit

This was great! Lots of flavor and texture! Super healthy...I used only one can of diced tomatoes and I cut up 3 fresh ones to add instead of a second can. This helps reduce the overall sodiu...

Absolutely delicious! I will definitely make it again! I did add more shrimp.

Fine soup. Not something I feel compelled to make again soon, but enjoyable.

Loved this recipe. Didn't have beans on hand, so I crumbled up some tortilla chips to add a little thickness. Absolutely lovely flavor.
