Recipe Type: Soup
Ingredients
  • 6 cups chopped carrots
  • 1 white onion, sliced into big chunks
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 leeks, sliced and rinsed
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups vegetable or chicken broth
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • dash nutmeg
  • dash ginger
  • 1 (14 oz) can light coconut milk
  • plain Greek yogurt, for topping
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Line two baking sheets with foil (optional but I do it for easier clean up).
  3. Divide carrots and onion among the two baking sheets and drizzle with 2 tbsp olive oil.
  4. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes.
  6. Add remaining 1 tbsp of olive oil to large soup pot and heat oven medium heat.
  7. Add leeks and cook 5-7 minutes, until they start to soften.
  8. Add garlic and cook 2 more minutes, stirring well.
  9. Add broth, curry powder, nutmeg, and ginger.
  10. Bring to a boil and let simmer 10 minutes.
  11. Remove from heat.
  12. Stir in half of coconut milk.
  13. At this point you can either transfer to a high powered blender, such as a Vitamix, or use an immersion blender to puree the soup. I used my Vitamix to get it super creamy.
  14. Add whatever amount of remaining coconut milk that you want, depending on your preference of how thick you like your soup. I just added a couple more tablespoons.
  15. Ladle into soup bowls and top with dollop of plain Greek yogurt.
  16. Enjoy!
