College Inn’s Thai Coconut Curry Broth

The last time I was at the supermarket, I noticed College Inn has a new line of flavored chicken broths.  Being a complete Asian food junky- I was immediately drawn to the Thai Coconut Curry broth.  I also had a coupon, so I  figured I’d give it a try.

I used the broth last night to make an Asian-styled tofu- vegetable soup.  The broth was an excellent base- not overly spicy although slightly salty (so watch your salt when cooking with it).  The broth was way more sophisticated than I figured anything College Inn could be- it certainly made an very tasty soup AND FAST!  This is a quick, work-night meal, perfect to serve on a cold night!


  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil (or Canola)
  • 2 teaspoons fresh grated ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper (or to taste)
  • 1 tablespooon fresh lime juice
  • 1 cup light coconut milk
  • 1 package shiitake mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 small bunches baby bok choy, sliced
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 package extra-firm tofu, chopped into 1″ chunks
  • 2 scallions, chopped (including greens)
  • 1/2 cup thin spaghetti, cut into 2″ pieces


In the oil, saute the onions, mushrooms, bok choy, curry, crushed red pepper and ginger until vegetables softened, 5 minutes over medium heat.  Once softened, add the broth, tofu, lime juice and coconut milk, and bring to a simmer.  Once simmering add the spaghetti, and cook until softened.  Once noodles are soft, add the scallions and serve.



  1. sounds really delicious .. Laila ..

  2. I LOVE this broth and suddenly, cannot find it anywhere. The College Inn sites do not offer a “where to buy” feature. I cook shshi rice in it and serve it with Salmon, grilled and with a maple syrup, butter and soy sauce. Garnish with chopped spring onions and it is more than yummy. All I need to do now is find the a store that carries the broth!

  3. hi stephanie…i just found it for .25 ….32 oz at one of my favorite areas i shop at… i pulled it up on the computer to find recipes thanks for your recipe.
