Ingredients
  

  • 1 kg carrots peeled and chopped
  • 1 large onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 400 ml coconut milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil for sautéing
  • Fresh cilantro or parsley for garnish optional

Instructions
 

  • In a large pot, sauté the diced onion and minced garlic in a bit of olive oil until softened.
  • Stir in the curry powder, ground cumin, and grated ginger. Sauté for an additional minute to let the spices release their flavors.
  • Add the chopped carrots to the pot and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Stir well to coat them in the spices.
  • Pour in the vegetable broth, bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and let it simmer. Cover and let it cook until the carrots are tender (about 15-20 minutes).
  • Use an immersion blender to puree the soup until smooth. If you don't have an immersion blender, carefully transfer the soup to a blender in batches.
  • Add coconut milk to the soup, stir, and simmer for an additional 5 minutes.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste. Adjust the spice levels and season according to your taste preferences.
  • Ladle the soup into bowls, and garnish with a swirl of coconut milk or fresh cilantro or parsley.
