I’m popping in to share a easy carrot soup that I’ve made not less than thrice this season. It’s silky easy (with assist from a strong blender and a can of coconut milk). And, when you get every little thing chopped, it comes collectively pretty fast.

One notice about consistency, as I’ve heard from a number of folks about how they’re by no means certain how you can get an excellent thickness. You’ll discover I don’t add the broth in with the cooking carrots- I wait. I nearly at all times do that with soups as a result of I need full management over consistency. Begin on the thick aspect and puree, including a little bit of broth at a time. The soup ought to coat a spoon properly however not be overly thick.

Additionally, by way of curry powder, I used a generic mix for this recipe however the soup can be completely pleasant with a particular mix. You may additionally use a pink curry paste as a substitute of the powder however I wouldn’t exit of my method to purchase a jar simply to make this soup.
