Sweet Apple Yellow Curry Soup

Sweet Apple Yellow Curry Soup
Who doesn't love yellow curry anything. Recently I enjoyed a yellow curry soup at Sprouts Natural Foods Cafe a block from the beach in South Lake Tahoe on Hwy 50. I loved it so much I used my napkin to write down all the ingredients in it, telling my lunch mates I would be recreating this delicious soup.

So here it is! Simple and full of flavor.

Cooking onions and crimini mushrooms while coconut milk and apples cook in soup pot.
Stir-frying all the veggies.
All ingredients added to yellow curry puree.
