Whole30 and Gluten Free Curried Pork Soup
Whole30 and Gluten Free
If you like curry…you will love this! This came to me after I had a hankering for curry for the last few days. It turned out to be delicious and the best part was that I had everything in my house already! I use Butcher Box and Thrive Market so for the most part, I just buy produce at the market from time to time. Warning: This is super spicy. I like it like that. You definitely can scale back on the curry or omit the jalapeño peppers and it would still be good.
- 1 cup of raw cashews (I get mine from Thrive Market)
- 1 can (13.5 oz) of organic coconut milk
- 1 lb of ground pork ( I used my heritage breed pork breakfast sausage from Butcher Box)
- 1/2 Tablespoon of ghee
- 1 red pepper
- 1 yellow pepper
- 1 green pepper
- 1 small jalapeño pepper
- 1 small onion
- 3 cloves of garlic
- 1 cup of fresh baby spinach
- 4 radishes
- 1 cup of compliant chicken stock
- 3 Tablespoons of organic curry powder
- 1 pinch of flake salt (I use Jacobsen’s)
- black pepper to taste
- Soak cashews overnight. Rinse thouroughly. Blend with coconut milk.
- Dice the green, red, and yellow pepper finely. Dice onion and garlic as well.
- Sauté vegetables with ghee on medium heat until translucent.
- Add in pork and brown slowly.
- Once browned, add in spinach and fold it in, allowing it to wilt from the steam.
- Add coconut cashew cream and stir slowly, turning up heat.
- Add black pepper and curry powder and continue stirring. Let simmer, stirring every few minutes for 10 minutes.
- De-seed jalapeño pepper and cut rings.
- Slice radishes using a mandolin.
- Once soup has simmered for 20 minutes, stir in chicken stock to thin it out a bit. Simmer for 10 minutes.
- Ladle into bowl. Add radishes and jalapeño peppers to the top. Add a pinch of flake salt. Enjoy!
Addendum: If you have leftovers, when you take this out of the refrigerator, you will see that this has thickened quite a bit. As is, warmed up, it would make a great sauce over noodles or cauliflower rice. But, if you would like it as a soup again, you may need to add some chicken stock when warming to loosen it up again.
