One of my Nourish Champions, Amanda, has kindly shared this easy and nutritious carrot and coconut soup suitable for just one or the whole family.
This soup is not only delicious but with the coconut milk it creates a boost rich in calories which means even just a little bowl can nourish you a great deal.
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 35-45 minutes
- 4 largish carrots
- 1/2 onion
- 1 garlic clove, crushed or chopped
- 1 teaspoon coconut oil or a dash of olive oil
- 200ml coconut milk
- juice of 1 lime
- 1 teaspoon turmeric
- pinch of salt
- small piece of fresh ginger (optional)
- 300ml vegetable stock (use enough to make your preferred consistency)
- fresh chopped coriander, to serve (optional)
Chop the carrots and onions in a chunky style.
Place in a roasting dish so they form a single layer and mix through the crushed or chopped garlic and oil
Roast in the oven at 200°C for 30- 40 minutes until the carrots are soft with some browned edges
Allow to cool slightly
Blend the roasted vegetables with the remaining ingredients to make a smooth or textured soup, as you prefer
Warm gently on a low heat until heated through
I sometimes have this with slivers of poached chicken and I also share this with the family. They like it with a teaspoon of harissa or curry powder and they have it with rice or some naan bread.
