Spicy Thai Red Curry Noodle Soup

"Spicy Thai curry noodle soup for lunch on a chilly wet afternoon from Pure Delicious by @heatherchristo. Last day to enter the give away for Heather's new book so you can make this recipe too! It's hard to believe that this soup was ready, and on the table, in a mere twenty minutes. Hot, spicy, with a gorgeous coconut milk broth this is my idea of comfort food. This vegetarian soup is made with red curry paste, garlic, fresh ginger, chicken stock, coconut milk and rice noodles. It's so simple and flavorful from just a few ingredients. This dish represents what's so great about Heather's new cookbook. This dish is gluten free, dairy free, and completely delicious! Even if you don't have any allergies, I'm sure you have friends who come over that do. This dish will satisfy everyone at the table! So happy that I was able to use my beautiful large ramen bowl from @jeredspottery too!"
