Creamy Carrot Coconut Curry Soup

What you need: 

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
few pinches turmeric
1 teaspoon curry powder or curry paste
2-3 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
8-9 medium carrots, chopped
1-2 vegetables, chopped coarsely (I use onion, zucchini, or celery)
few pinches sea salt, to taste
1 (14 ounce) can coconut milk
2 teaspoons vegetable bouillon or several dashes soy sauce or Bragg's
pepper, to taste
small pinch nutmeg

What you do: 

1. Use a heavy-bottomed pot that will be suitable for holding the soup. In the pot, heat the oil on medium-low; add turmeric, curry powder or curry paste, and chopped garlic, and warm gently for a minute or so, only until the garlic is translucent.
2. Add the carrots and other vegetables to pot. Add water up to the top of the vegetables, and add a pinch or 2 salt. Simmer on medium heat until the carrots are soft, about 15 minutes.
3. Add the vegetable bouillon (or soy sauce or Bragg's), and the coconut milk. Add a pinch nutmeg and pepper. Simmer gently until flavors are incorporated, about 5 minutes.
4. Whizz with a hand-held blender directly in the pot (preferred), or carefully transfer small amounts at a time into a blender or food processor, blend, and transfer back into pot to warm briefly.
Serve hot and enjoy! Hope you like it.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I just wanted to say that I've made this soup several times from this recipe for 2 fall/winter seasons now and it gets better every time. I like to add ground coriander and ground ginger, use celery and a bit of onion most times, but my girlfriend doesn't like onions so I use celery and zucchini when serving for both of us. SUPER tasty and super easy to make.

It's so easy to make and for Veggies I used the obvious carrots, I cut up some Zucchini and used Kale as well.
Once it was simmer and I blended it all into one creamy goodness soup, it had a perfect consistancy. I used about 3 cups of water too.

I agree - throw a bunch of veggies in there and it's fantastic.  I went a different route, and instead of a soup, made it into a sauce - let it cook with lentils, carrots, potatoes, onions, kale, red pepper and simmer for 10 minutes (those potatoes sop up the milk nicely!) into a thick creamy goodness, and poured over rice.  it's fantastic! ;)b

Please try this soup, it's really good and if you add a little Cayenne pepper it will clear your sinuses if your allergies are acting up or you're sick.
