Ginger Curry Beef Noodle Soup - Gluten Free

 It's been a long time since I posted hasn't it?  "Oh Vey"!  Life seems to get in the way of best intentions...

Anyhoo, this soup is absolutely delicious!  That's all I'm saying, seriously! Chock full of beef, rice noodles, spinach, sweet potatoes... See?  I'm not going to preface any further, I'm going right to the recipe.

Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 45 minutes
Yield:  4-6 servings

3 Tbsp grapeseed or coconut oil
1 lb beef cut into small strips
1 medium red onion, diced
3 Tbsp fresh ginger, minced
1/4 cup soy sauce, (I used low sodium)
1 Tbsp mild curry powder
2-1/2 tsp mild chili powder
1/2 tsp (or more if you like) cayenne pepper
2 garlic cloves, minced
1-1/2 tsp salt
1 can coconut milk
64 oz vegetable broth
2 limes, juiced - aka; juice of 2 limes
1 sweet potato, cut into matchsticks
1 8oz bag of fresh spinach

  1 8.8 oz bag of rice noodles (see above - click on link to order if you like) - or go shopping... *grin*

Toppings optional: Green onions, cilantro, lime, chopped fresh chilies

-Prep all your vegetables, measure all your spices and set aside.

-In a medium stock pot, add the grapeseed oil, let heat and saute your beef strips till nicely browned.

-Add in diced onion and minced ginger.  Cook for a few minutes till everything starts to look golden. 

-Add in the soy sauce, curry powder and chili powder and cook for a few minutes till the spices are aromatic.

-Add the garlic, coconut milk, broth and lime juice, turn heat down to low and let simmer for about 15 minutes or so.

-Soak rice noodles in cold water for 15-20 minutes, and drain.

-Add the sweet potato match sticks to the soup and continue to simmer.  Once sweet potatoes are tender about 5-10 minutes, add in the spinach, stir in until spinach starts to wilt.  About 2-3 minutes.

To serve:

Add drained rice noodles to the bowl...

Ladle in that decadent soup...

Top with green onions and lime if so desired, and I so so desire...

and dig in...

Till next time!
