Broccoli and butternut squash curry noodle soup is an all-time favourite amongst my SIBO community because it is hearty, delicious and incredibly satisfying. Perfect on a cold winter’s night. To make this soup extra filling, I added some rice noodles. If you’re not ready to try rice noodles yet, you can omit them or swap them for zucchini noodles.
- 2 tbs coconut oil
- 1 leek, finely chopped
- 2 sticks celery, finely diced
- 1 thumb size piece of ginger, grated
- 2 tsp ground cumin
- 1½ tsp ground coriander
- 1 tsp garam masala
- 1 tsp turmeric
- ¼ tsp cloves
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 quart vegetable stock
- 10.5 oz butternut squash, cubed
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 10.5 oz broccoli, cut into pieces
- 4.2 oz rice noodles
- 40 macadamia nuts
- 1 pomegranate, seeds only
- Handful parsley leaves
- 1 lime, cut into wedges
- Heat the coconut oil in a large pot then add the leek and celery. Sauté for 5 minutes or until softened and slightly golden. Stir in the ginger and cook for 1 minute. Add the cumin, coriander, garam masala, turmeric, cloves and salt, and stir for 1 minute or until aromatic. Pour in the vegetable stock. Stir well to combine. Add the butternut squash, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes.
- When the butternut squash is soft, pour in the coconut milk. When simmering, add the broccoli and rice noodles and cook for a few minutes or until the noodles are soft and cooked through and the broccoli is tender. Taste and season with salt and black pepper accordingly.
- Divide the soup between 4 large bowls. Top with macadamia nuts, pomegranate seeds and parsley. Serve with a wedge of lime.
To make this soup Low FODMAP, swap the leek for 5 scallions, green part only.
