Vietnamese Style Vegetarian Curry Soup

Vietnamese Style Vegetarian Curry Soup
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, coarsely chopped
  • 2 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 inch piece fresh ginger root, thinly sliced
  • 1 stalk lemon grass, cut into 2 inch pieces
  • 4 tablespoons curry powder
  • 1 green bell pepper, coarsely chopped
  • 2 carrots, peeled and diagonally sliced
  • 8 mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 pound fried tofu, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons vegetarian fish sauce (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons red pepper flakes
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 kaffir lime leaves
  • 8 small potatoes, quartered
  • 1 (14 ounce) can coconut milk
  • 2 cups fresh bean sprouts, for garnish
  • 8 sprigs fresh chopped cilantro, for garnish



  1. Heat oil in a large stock pot over medium heat. Saute onion and shallots until soft and translucent. Stir in garlic, ginger, lemon grass and curry powder. Cook for about 5 minutes, to release the flavors of the curry. Stir in green pepper, carrots, mushrooms and tofu. Pour in vegetable stock and water. Season with fish sauce and red pepper flakes. Bring to a boil, then stir in potatoes and coconut milk. When soup returns to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 40 to 60 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. Garnish each bowl with a pile of bean sprouts and cilantro.
