SPICES: Ground Cumin, Ground Coriander, Curry Powder 



  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
  • 1 pound small red potatoes, cut into a 1/2-inch dice
  • 6 cups corn (from about 8 ears fresh or you can use frozen)
  • 2 14-ounce can unsweetened coconut milk
  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large soup pot over medium heat. Add the onion with the salt and pepper, and cook until soft, about 3 minutes.
  2. Add the garlic, potatoes, and corn and cook for 1 minute.
  3. Add the coconut milk, broth, cumin, coriander and curry powder. Bring to a boil, then down to a simmer. Cook for another 15 minutes, until potatoes are cooked through.
  4. Add the shrimp and simmer until pink and cooked through, about 3 minutes. Adjust the salt and pepper if needed and serve hot.

Note: for the pureed version, blend the soup before adding the shrimp.  You can also puree half the soup to simply thicken it up.
