Do you love curry so much you could just…drink it?

Because life is too short to not drink curry.

You can quote me on that.

All joshing aside, this magnificently comforting Thai soup recipe is gluten-free, soy-free, packed with veggies, and is crazy filling and satisfying. Plus, it’s fun to make!

If you’re a regular consumer of bone broth, try making it at home in your pressure cooker! It’s basically free when you use chicken bones from a whole chicken you have already prepared, and it only requires 2 hours of time!

Making bone broth on the stove top takes upwards of 24 hours. Taking the Instant Pot approach removes all the guesswork and takes so little time or effort, there’s really no reason not to do it!
