  • tablespoons  olive oil
  • stalks celery diced
  • 2 large carrots diced
  • 1 large red bell pepper diced
  • small yellow onion diced
  • cloves  garlic minced
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt plus more to taste (I used 1 teaspoon)
  • 1/2  teaspoon  pepper
  • teaspoon  ground ginger
  • teaspoon  crushed red pepper flakes omit or lessen if you don’t like spicy foods
  • 1/2  cup  peanut butter use the all natural, just nuts, no sugar added variety
  • 1 (4 oz) jar red curry paste I used the whole jar, but could start with less if you’re worried about the spice level
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar packed
  • cups  vegetable broth or chicken broth
  • (14 oz) cans lite coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup fish sauce
  • 1 pound  cooked chicken about 4 cups - I used leftover rotisserie chicken
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1 (8 oz) package Annie Chun Rice Noodles Pad Thai cooked according to package directions (I followed the soak method) - you can use another noodle if desired
  • Chopped cilantro for garnish
  • Chopped salted roasted peanuts for garnish
  • Sliced green onions for garnish
  1. Heat a large stockpot over medium heat.
  2. Once hot, add in olive oil, celery, carrots, bell pepper, onion, garlic, salt, pepper, ginger, and red pepper flakes.
  3. Cook, stirring regularly, until veggies are tender, about 5-10 minutes.
  4. Stir in peanut butter, curry paste, and brown sugar.
  5. Slowly whisk in broth, coconut milk, and fish sauce.
  6. Stir in cooked chicken.
  7. Bring to a simmer.
  8. Once simmering, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes (you'll probably need to lower heat to LOW to keep the mixture at a simmer).
  9. Stir in lime juice, then taste and re-season, if necessary.
  10. Place desired amount of cooked noodles* into serving bowls and top with hot soup.
  11. Garnish with cilantro, green onions, and peanuts.
  12. Enjoy!

*You don’t want to stir the cooked noodles into the big pot of soup, because they soak up too much liquid and get soggy.

**Store leftover soup and leftover cooked noodles in separate containers in the fridge.
