Curried Squash & Chicken Soup

Red Thai curry paste adds heat and depth of flavor to this simple soup. If you like, omit the chicken and spinach to make an even simpler first-course soup.


  • 1 10-ounce package frozen pureed winter squash
  • 1/2 cup "lite" coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 8 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breast, , thinly sliced
  • 1 6-ounce bag baby spinach
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon Thai red curry paste
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


Step 1
Heat squash, coconut milk and water in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. 
Step 2
Cook, stirring occasionally, until the squash defrosts, about 10 minutes. 
Step 3
Add chicken, reduce heat to medium and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes. 
Step 4
Stir in spinach, lime juice, sugar, curry paste to taste and salt and continue cooking until the chicken is cooked through, about 3 minutes longer.
