For a flavorful soup, this recipe is super speedy: it comes together in about 20 minutes total. A creamy coconut milk and chicken broth base is cut with green curry paste and fragrant chopped lemongrass. You’re actually enjoying lemongrass two ways because it’s an ingredient in curry paste as well. Right when all of the flavors have melded together, you add a handful of thin rice noodles. They cook instantly in the simmering broth and add satisfying substance. Fresh chile and opal basil add a final layer of flavor before serving (but regular Genovese basil works if that’s what you can find).
