Equipment

  • 1 blender OR immersion blender
  • 1 dutch oven OR stock pot

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 inch peeled ginger root, grated (or 1/2 teaspoon dried ginger)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1 1/2 lbs carrots, peeled & sliced into 1/3" coins
  • 1 quart low sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 can (13.5 oz) full fat coconut milk
  • Sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste

Instructions

  • In a large dutch oven, add the olive oil and onion. Saute for 3-5 minutes on medium-high heat until onion is tender and translucent.
  • Stir in the garlic, ginger, and curry powder. Cook for 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
  • Add the carrots and broth. Bring to a simmer and cover. Cook for 18-20 minutes or until carrots slices are fork tender.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the coconut milk.
  • Transfer to a blender (or use an immersion blender) to puree until smooth. Return to the pot and stir in the coconut milk, salt, and pepper. Bring to a simmer for another 1-2 minutes then turn off the heat and serve.

Notes

  • This is my favorite curry powder for this recipe.
  • I prefer to peel my carrots for this soup recipe, but you can use unpeeled carrots too. Just make sure to scrub them well to remove any dirt. 
  • Both full fat and lite coconut milk can be used. Don't like coconut milk? Use unsweetened, plain soy milk or 1/2 of a 12 oz package of silken tofu.
