Carrot Soup Recipe
Does anyone else purchase a bag of carrots for a recipe, use two and then forget about the rest? It happens to me more often than I would like and I am NOT a fan of wasting food.
This past weekend I made a Curried Coconut Carrot Soup with the pile of carrots I had on hand (about 16 small-medium sized carrots to be exact) and liked it so much I thought I would share it with you...
What to Serve with Carrot Soup
I served this carrot soup for dinner along with sautéed and seasoned cauliflower rice and steamed peas. Sort of an Indian inspired dinner and it was delicious! For the twins I cooked up some quick breaded turkey cutlets on the side as well because growing babies need their protein. Personally, I was completely content with big bowls of soup and the cauliflower rice, however the garlic naan from Trader Joe's would have rounded out this meal nicely.
Ingredients In Curried Coconut Carrot Soup
As for the soup itself, there isn't a lot that goes into it! Just a whole bunch of carrots, onion and ginger, coconut milk and of course curry powder. No butter or milk are used in this recipe, however the end result is luscious and creamy.
I added just a squeeze of lime, toasted coconut and cilantro before serving and it was amazing! Definitely a soup I will make again and again. It makes a good amount so if you are serving it with other dishes, plan to have leftovers.
How to Make Carrot Soup
- Sauté: cook onions and carrots first until tender!
- Add some flavor: add the ginger, curry, coconut milk and vegetable stock.
- Simmer: low and slow until carrots and veggies are soft.
- Puree: I love using THIS immersion blender to puree all of my soups. This way you can puree right in the pot and not have to transfer hot soup in batches to a blender.
Who's ready to make soup for dinner? I hope you will try this delicious dish this week. If you do, please come back and let me know how you enjoyed it! I highly recommend serving it with a side of Trader Joe's Garlic Naan Bread, yum!
