I’m popping in to share a easy carrot soup that I’ve made a minimum of thrice this season. It’s silky clean (with assist from a strong blender and a can of coconut milk). And, when you get all the pieces chopped, it comes collectively pretty fast.
One notice about consistency, as I’ve heard from a couple of folks about how they’re by no means certain the best way to get a very good 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 facet 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, when it comes to curry powder, I used a generic mix for this recipe however the soup can be completely pleasant with a selected mix. You can additionally use a crimson curry paste as an alternative of the powder however I wouldn’t exit of my means to purchase a jar simply to make this soup.
