George Mateljan from Worlds healthiest foods sent this soup recipe out in his most recent newsletter.  It sounds so good I just have to try it and see how good it is!

Here is a reprint if anyone is interested.

I am thinking I am also going to try it as a raw soup and just blend it down to a smoothie. ūüėÄ sounds like fun!

Carrot Coconut Soup

The ginger and curry powder add great flavor to this easy-to-prepare soup. It’s also rich in vitamin A and tastes great!

Prep and Cook Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 TBS + 3 cups chicken or vegetable¬†broth
  • 2 TBS fresh ginger, sliced
  • 4 medium cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 2 cups sliced carrots, about 1/4-inch thick
  • 1 cup sweet potato, cut into about 1/2-inch cubes
  • 5 oz canned coconut milk
  • salt and white pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Chop onion and let it sit for at least five minutes to bring out its hidden health benefits.
  2. Heat 1 TBS broth in a medium soup pot. Healthy Sauté onion in broth over medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring often.
  3. Add garlic and ginger and continue to sauté for another minute.
  4. Add curry powder and mix well with onions.
  5. Add broth, carrots, and sweet potato and simmer on medium high heat until vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes.
