Winter calls for warm, delicious food. And what better than keeping ourselves nourished with soups? Soups are the perfect winter fix – you can have them at any time of the day, simply cherishing the bowl full of goodness. The best part about soups is that you don’t have to have a rigid recipe – just keep the basic process constant, mix and match, experiment with ingredients you love – and the soup will turn out just as lip-smacking! Let’s talk about all the benefits of this Thai red curry soup.
Now that we’ve been broaching over this subject of soups, let’s get into one of my favorite soup recipes. And for those who know me, I always love giving my recipes a twist! This recipe is just like that – you can call it a soup, you can call it a curry, or simply call it the ultimate curry-soup recipe!
Whether you have little children or adults at home, this plant-based curry is an absolute hit among them all! My mouth is already watering at the very thought of this healthy vegan curry, and I just can’t wait to share it with you. Before we dive into the easy vegan curry soup recipe, let’s understand the star ingredient of this recipe – Peas.
Peas have always been my favorite ingredient and I love adding loads of them to a variety of recipes. Peas are so delectable that you can just settle with a couple of them – it is either a pod or a handful of them (if you love eating them raw!). Just as good as they are for snacking, peas come with a whole range of health benefits too.
A Great Source of Iron
Peas are a powerhouse of iron – so if you’re struggling to get rid of anemia, simply stock up your diet with peas. Soups, salads, or simply raw peas – you can consume peas as you love. With the lack of iron, your body will not be able to generate healthy oxygen-carrying red blood cells. This will result in hemoglobin deficiency. To avoid this from happening, you simply have to replenish the iron levels in your body on a regular basis – and there’s no better way than including peas in your diet.
Loaded With Antioxidants
Peas contain phytoalexins, a powerful antioxidant that combats H.Pylori. This bacteria causes stomach cancer and duodenal ulcers. By including peas, you can nip the growth of this bacteria at the very beginning. Peas work wonders in keeping your gut clean and clear from the H.Pylori and other harmful bacteria, giving you another reason to include it in your diet.
Healthy for Your Eyes
Packed with Lutein, a carotenoid pigment, peas can work wonderfully for the health of your eyes. Not only do they boost eyesight, but also cut down the risk of cataract. Peas also help to keep your vision safe in old age, by cutting down the possibility of macular degeneration.
