Creamy Carrot Soup

May 13, 2016

This is one of my favorite soups, especially in the Fall & Winter months! Not only are all the ingredients healthy for you on so many levels, but it's very creamy, so delicious & easy to make. I love to serve this with warmed up, crusty, multigrain rolls & butter.

Serves: 3 to 4 as a light meal or 4 to 6 as a starter

Ingredients

1 Tblsp coconut oil

1/2 large vidalia onion, diced (about 1 cup)

1 - 1 1/2 lbs organic carrots, peeled, sliced & roughly chopped (4 cups)

1/2 tsp kosher or sea salt

Fresh ground black pepper, 3 pepper mill turns

1 tsp ground turmeric

2 Tblsp fresh ginger, peeled & chopped small (see Ginger, how to peel in the Herbs, Spices & Seasonings category)

3 cups organic chicken or vegetable broth

1 - 13.5 oz can organic, unsweetened coconut milk

3 to 4 cloves garlic, peeled & minced

For serving: ground cinnamon & fresh grated nutmeg (see Tip# 1)

Optional: garnish with a couple of sprigs of fresh parsley

Directions

1 In a 12 quart deep stock pot; melt coconut oil over med-high heat. Stir in onion & carrots. Lower heat to medium & cook for 5 minutes, partially covered, stirring occasionally (see Tip# 2).

2 Stir in salt, pepper, turmeric & ginger. Cook another 1 minute.

3 Stir in broth, raise heat to high & bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover & simmer for 20 minutes or till carrots are tender.

4 Stir in coconut milk & garlic. Remove from heat & let cool, uncovered, about 5 minutes.

5 Using an immersion blender; process (right in the pot) till soup is blended, but still has some small chunks of carrot (see Tip# 2).

6 Taste & season with a little more salt & pepper, if you like.

7 Ladle soup into serving bowls. Add a pinch of cinnamon & some fresh grated nutmeg to each bowl, garnish with parsley (if using) & serve. Refrigerate or freeze any leftovers.

Tips & Suggestions

1 In any recipe that calls for nutmeg, I always suggest using fresh grated nutmeg & not the store bought variety. The aroma & taste of fresh grated nutmeg is beyond compare

2 If you don't have an immersion blender, you can cook this in a smaller pot. At directions# 5... transfer the soup to a blender & pulse till the texture of the ingredients are to your liking. Or, if you prefer, puree till soup is completely smooth.
