Monday was a rainy day so I decided to make a pot of something that would warm my tummy. I make a lot of different versions of carrot soup but this one is a bit on the spicier side. It will definitely open up your sinuses but still offer the creamy texture of a nicely purred carrot soup.
Curry Ginger Carrot Soup
Serves 8-9 bowls, which is awesome as I was able to pack some for lunches, as well as freeze some for another dinner.
Cook Time: 30-40 mins, but the longer you leave it to simmer the more flavourful it becomes.
1 tbsp olive oil
1 med white onion, diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
10-15 carrots (depends on their size) peeled, and diced
5 small potatoes, peeled and diced
2 tbsp fresh ginger minced
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp coriander
1 1/2 tbsp curry powder
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sucanat
1 tsp GF worchester sauce
8 cups of water or broth, I ran out of broth so I used water and it turned out just as good
pepper to taste
Step 1: Wash & prep all your vegetables as per the above instructions under ingredients. Find all your spices and pre-measure them into a ramekin.
|My carrot was growing some type of hair, definitely time to use them before they go bad!|
|Carrots are a great source of Vitamin A and help your night vision!|
|Add all your spices.....|
|Add broth or water....|
Step 4: Using a hand blender, pulse the soup until it is pureed to your liking.
|Puree the soup with a hand blender or a regular blender...|
As I am writing this I wish I had a big bowl of this soup to cheer up my day. Unfortunetly my husand and I were rear ended on our way in to work this morning, not a great start to the morning at 7:30am on our hour commute, ( I swear I'm not complaining! lol) Feeling a little sore :( but overall I am thankful that it was not worse which it could have been!
Today Im thankful for insurance that will fix our bumper. lol. :) Everyone at work was great which turned my day back around to a good day.
How do you turn your frown upside down?
Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone,
