Carrot Coconut Soup

This is a favorite soup of many people I have made this for. In fact, the word used to describe it often has been "Divine." It is not only very easy, but it is loaded with vitamin A, which is so important for our health.

Carrot Coconut Soup Prep and Cook Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:
3 cups vegetable stock
1 large onion chopped
2 TBS fresh ginger sliced, or 1 tsp dried
4 cloves garlic, chopped
2 cups sliced carrots
1 cup sweet potato cut into small cubes
1 tsp curry powder
5 oz canned coconut milk
salt and white pepper to taste

Directions:


  1. Healthy Sauté onion in a medium sized soup pot for about 5 minutes, stirring often. Add garlic and fresh ginger and continue to sauté for another minute. Add curry powder and dried ginger if you are not using fresh, and mix well with onions. Add stock, carrots, and sweet potato and simmer on medium high heat until vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes.
  2. Add coconut milk and blend in batches making sure blender is not more than half full. When it's hot, if blender is too full it can erupt and burn you. Salt and pepper to taste. Return to soup pot and reheat.
