"This is a creamy soup chock full of veggies and perfect for our weekly vegetarian night. Even so, it feels totally rich and decadent. I like to drizzle a bit of goat yogurt on top, but then it's not completely animal-free after all..."

Original is 4 servings
  • Optional - I like to add a small knob of fresh turmeric (a 1 inch piece, sliced)at the same time as the carrots. It gives it a nice layer of taste and a more beautiful color. Plus it is SO good for you!

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Heat oil in a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan. Add onion and garlic, and sauté 3 to 5 minutes, or until onion is translucent.

Step 2

Add ginger, potato, carrot and bell pepper. Cover, reduce heat, and cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Step 3

Add coconut milk and stir to combine. Cover and cook 2 more minutes.

Step 4

Add the broth and season with pepper. Cover and cook until all vegetables are tender.

Step 5

In a blender or food processor, puree the soup in small batches until smooth. For each batch, add a little bit of sea salt, to taste. You may also want to add a bit more coconut milk, depending on your taste.

Step 6

To serve, ladle into warm soup bowls and garnish with a bit of minced parsley or cilantro. It's also nice to drizzle a bit of plain yogurt or sour cream over the top.

This soup is divine! I did made a couple of changes. I used a yam for the potato, did not use the red pepper (can't eat it), added Madras curry powder for some heat and used dried turmeric as I could not get fresh. Thank you for this awesome recipe Lori! Will be made again as it is quick and easy on busy days.
