Curried Carrot Soup

Delightfully bright, this carrot soup recipe is packed with goodness. I like to add freshly made carrot juice, but it’s an extra step (and more cleanup), so feel free to skip it and just add a bit more water or non-dairy milk.

Freshly grated ginger gives this sweet carrot puree an extra kick of flavor and takes up the heat a notch (my 9-year-old didn’t appreciate that, so next time I’ll skip it for a milder taste). Another option is to add a few strips of orange zest. For some crunch, add a garnish of toasted pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, or pine nuts.

Carrot Soup Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 2 tablespoons spelt or rice flour
  • 4 carrots, tops removed, washed and chopped
  • 4 cups water or vegetable stock
  • 1 cup carrot juice (juice 2-3 carrots)
  • 1 cup non-dairy milk (soymilk, almond milk, etc.)
  • 1 tablespoon agave or other sweetener (use less if using sweetened milk)
  • a slice of fresh ginger root, grated (optional)
  • fresh pepper and salt, to taste

Instructions

  1. In a large pot, saute the onions with curry powder in 2-3 tablespoons of water for 3-5 minutes, until the onion turns translucid (cover the pot to prevent water from evaporating and onion from burning). Stir in flour, carrots and water or stock. Bring to boil and simmer for 20-30 minutes, until carrots are tender.
  2. Juice carrots for 1 cup juice. This step is optional. If you'd rather skip juicing, just add a little more stock or milk, or water.
  3. Using a hand-blender blend the contents of the pot; or if using counter top blender or food processor, transfer the contents into the container and blend well. If using ginger, add it to the mixture and blend well.
  4. Add carrot juice, non-dairy milk, agave. Season with salt & pepper to taste.
