This Slow Cooker Thai Curry Soup is a creamy, Thai-inspired dish loaded with nutritious ingredients. Chicken and peanut butter add plenty of protein, and we’ve packed in a lengthy list of veggies for tons of nutrients — peppers, onion, bean sprouts, ginger, peas and corn! Coconut milk, ginger, lime, and curry lend additional health benefits as well as flavor. We’ve also achieved a silky, smooth texture thanks to the peanut butter and coconut milk. It’s so rich you won’t believe there’s no cream!
This dish is easily thrown together in the slow cooker, so enjoy it on a busy night for dinner after you’ve let it cook down all day. Serve bowls of this fragrant soup topped with chopped fresh cilantro and a squirt of fresh lime juice.
