- 1 cup fat-free, lower-sodium chicken broth or use bone broth
- (optional) 1 teaspoons coconut sugar

- Heat a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add olive oil; swirl to coat. Add onion; sauté 3 minutes. Add curry paste, garlic, and ginger; sauté 45 seconds, stirring constantly.
- Add broth and next 5 ingredients (through salt); cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes, stirring frequently.
- Using immersion blender, puree until smooth. You can also use a blender for this step. Be careful because mixture is hot.

I like eating this soup as is, but Paul likes to add steamed vegetables to give it more substance.
