What’s Inside: This coconut curry soup recipe with shrimp and zoodles is Whole30 and Paleo. It’s a super easy weeknight meal and packed with veggies! This recipe proves healthy eating can happen in 30 minutes or less.
I am all about the easy zoodle recipes right about now! And this green coconut curry soup recipe is perfect for any weeknight meal. You control the spice factor with how much spice you add-in… and don’t forget those sweet peppers for a perfect balance! The fresh herbs also take this up to another level and will really hit the spot. It’s dairy-free, paleo, and good to go on Whole30, too.
I recently discussed some top tips for weeknight meals in my Facebook group, and one of them is to keep quick proteins on hand! Sometimes that’s what can be the most daunting… is to defrost a big pack of meat or fish. However, frozen shrimp takes just minutes to defrost in cold water and just 4 minutes or so to cook! Plus, it’s so refreshing and easy.
Another tip is to clean the fridge with veggies! This is a great bowl for that type of thing, because of all the vibrant and colorful veggies like peas, peppers, and zucchini… not to mention all the herbs. We aren’t being skimpy here at all! And everything is so adaptable to your taste so everyone can get what they want in just 30 minutes.
Eating more Paleo and Whole30-friendly meals is a great way to prioritize whole foods that are nutrient-dense and supportive of your health. The less processed foods in our diet, the closer to nature and our innate health we are!
Let’s chat flavor, shall we? Curry! I’m a huge lover of coconut curry because it mellows out the spice and for me, less is more. Okay, okay… that might be a fancy way of saying I’m a total pansy when it comes to hot spices but I own it! The creamy coconut milk makes this a bit more of a mild curry if you wish and the textures will make your mouth and tummy happy.
Curry powder contains a variety of anti-inflammatory spices, including turmeric, coriander, and chili powder (the spices may vary by the type of curry). Many of these spices have been studied for their numerous health benefits and have been long used in Indian cuisine and in Ayurveda, one of the world’s oldest approaches to holistic healing.

Traditional curry is not AIP-friendly, as it contains many nightshade spices, which may not be agreeable at least on the elimination phase. But, if you’re looking to try an AIP version, check this one out! The cinnamon, clove, turmeric, and other spices/herbs are all very beneficial as well!
Repeat after me… if you think zoodle recipes are boring, you need to try this one and my others! It’s all about the flavor, sauces, herbs, and toppings you bring to them!
