This soup is healthy and deliciously flavorful thanks to the curry and creamy coconut milk!


Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1/2 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    1 tsp. curry powder
    1 tiny garlic clove
    1/4 inch piece fresh ginger, mashed
    1/2 lb. carrots, chopped
    3 C low sodium vegetable broth
    1/4 C light coconut milk

Directions

For more great recipes, check out my blog: fannetasticfood.com

Instructions:

1) Put the olive oil, curry powder, garlic, ginger, carrots, and 1.5 cups veggie broth in a pan on high heat.

2) Bring to a boil, then lower heat to a simmer until the carrots are soft (about 15 to 20 minutes). Near the end of the time, the veggie broth will have mostly evaporated, so pour in the remaining 1.5 cups.

3) Once the carrots are soft, let the mixture cool a bit, then pour it into a blender and puree it!

4) Transfer the puree back to a pot on medium heat, stir in the coconut milk, and serve warmed! Top with cracked black pepper if desired.

Enjoy! :) Makes about 4 servings.

    YUM! Thick, delicious and filling. Great lunch time warmer on a cold day. I often seem to have an oversupply of carrots so tried this to use some up but will definitely keep making it for no other reason than pure enjoyment with minimal calories. Thanks, I'll be sure to check out your other recipes. - 5/29/10

    This didn't make 4 servings at all, unless you are feeding people in jail or something of that nature. Will "beef" it up next time. - 7/11/10

    Lol! When I made it it was served as an appetizer, so that's why I put 4 servings. Either way, it's tasty :)

    WOW!!! Wanted to try this for some time, but my sisters are not big fans of curry. Made it anyway, and after one bite - THEY LOVED IT! Froze the rest of the coconut milk, but I suspect it will get used up soon. I can see this being adapted w/pumpkin or other winter squashes. Thanks!!! - 9/4/11

    Just wanted to report that I made this yesterday and it was truly wonderful! I had made some "Peasant bread" (recipe in Mt High Yoghurt email, which I lightened up some). I did add 1/2 yellow bell pepper that needed to be used up. I plan on making this soup often. Yum, yum, yum!!! - 9/21/10

    Great! Will do again and again. Since I don't like that nasty "light" coconut milk I used coconut milk powder. Not as good as real coconut milk, but better than the "light" stuff. Since it's powder, I don't have the problem of how to use up the rest of the can when I only use part. - 12/16/10

  • This is a soup I make often. Sometimes I use pumpkin or winter squash instead of or in addition to carrots. Also, to save time washing a big blender, an immersion blender is inexpensive and doesn't take up a lot of room in a kitchen. - 3/16/14

  • Thoroughly enjoyed it. I was out of a few ingredients, and I have to cut back on saturated fats, but I had lots of carrots so I made it with almond milk (instead of coconut) and ground ginger. It was delicous & so quick and easy! - 3/6/13

  • Oh my WORD! This was simply delicious! I did tweak the recipe somewhat. I added 1 teaspoon Arabic masala, 1/4 tsp chilli flakes, a small onion (diced), 1/2 cup dried red lentils and 1/2 lb green beans (chopped up). I also first sauteed all the spices and onions in the oil. WOW! - 1/24/12

  • Delicious & very easy to make. I used a pan lid (ahem!) for ecological reasons which meant that very little of the veggie broth evaporated so I used double-strength Marigold bouillon to emulate reduction. Substituted cumin for curry powder. Doubled the quantity, made 3 good portions. Superb, thanks! - 8/10/11
