Recipe: Carrot, Ginger and Coconut Soup

This soup combines some of my favourite flavours, so it’s no surprise that it has fast become one of my favourite soups! I had meant to freeze most of it to enjoy on the cold winter nights ahead, but the whole first batch somehow disappeared so unfortunately I just had to whip up some more! My parents stopped by one Saturday around lunchtime and so played the role of taste testers and then wouldn’t leave until I promised to give them the recipe, it’s that tasty!

So, onto the recipe!

Ingredients List

  • 4 large carrots
  • Brown onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1tbs fresh ginger
  • 1tsp cumin
  • 1tbs curry powder (or to taste)
  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • Can of coconut milk (full cream)
  • Fresh coriander (to serve)

I definitely recommend going full cream with the coconut milk, the lite stuff is a bit too watery for this soup, it wants to be thick and creamy!

  1. Peel and chop the carrots into chunks and dice the onion
  2. Cook the onion and carrots in a little oil in a large saucepan for a few minutes, until the onion is translucent
  3. Add the grated ginger, minced garlic and spices and stir for a minute
  4. Add the stock and simmer, partially covered, for 20 minutes, until the carrot is tender
  5. Allow to cool slightly then puree in a food processor
  6. Return to the saucepan, turn the heat to medium and pour in the coconut milk. Stir until it’s combined and heated through
  7. Serve with some chopped fresh coriander (and croutons if you like!)
  8. Enjoy!

    This sounds so good (I’m pretty sure I say that every week but it’s true). I’m a huge ginger fan so I can’t wait to try this.

      Exactly – as long as you’re not eating a can of it a day there’s no reason to go lite on it I think!
