The fourth in our recipe pairing series by Chef Christina Machamer, this easy Thai Green Curry Soup is cozy, healthy, and oh-so-satisfying - and paired with our 2022 Moscato Azul, the perfumed tropical + floral flavors of the wine burst out in a delightful and unexpected combination.
Easy thai green curry soup
pair with 2022 la sirena moscato azul
As the weather grows crisp and we sail into a new year, I find myself craving something warm,
healthy, and easy, while I dream of a summer to come. With notes of ginger and lemon grass and
the silky feel of coconut milk, this versatile soup is the perfect match for the Moscato Azul. The
bright acid structure of the wine cuts through the richness of the soup, while its palette of graceful
tropical flowers allows the complexity of the green curry to flourish. Notes of ripe melon in the
wine wash away the lingering curry spice leaving you refreshed and ready for more.
NOTE: I love the flavor of fresh green curry paste, but the ingredients (and the time) can be hard
to find. For this recipe we are using Mekhala curry paste, but any favorite brand will work. Feel free
to indulge on this recipe by using your favorite protein and veggies to create your personalized
version. (Remi suggests thinly sliced red onions and sliced button mushrooms!)
