Carrot and Curry Soup

If you’re looking to boost your vitamin A levels, you can’t go past a carrot.

Even though it’s not winter here at the moment, the subtle curry flavour in this soup is warming and delicious, making it perfect for a Saturday lunch outside under the trees.

Vitamin A is a valuable nutrient for health conditions like thyroid disorders, skin conditions (eczema, dermatitis, acne), for a healthy immune system and let’s not forget our eyes!

Teamed with popular coconut oil and coconut cream for a dose of healthy fats, loads of flavour and fresh coriander, this soup will become a favourite.

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 leek, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed or chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cumin powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 2 tablespoons Tikka curry paste
  • 500ml chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 parsnip, peeled and chopped
  • 4-5 carrots (approx 450g), peeled and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • coconut cream (to serve)
  • fresh coriander (to serve)

In a saucepan on low/medium heat, saute the leek and garlic in the coconut oil until the leek is soft.  Add in the cumin, ginger and curry paste and stir for a minute until fragrant.

Add the stock, water, parsnip and carrots and simmer until the vegetables are tender (about 20-30 minutes).

Stir through the tomato paste.  Then blend in a food processor or with a stick blender.

Serve with a dollop of coconut cream and chopped fresh coriander.

With your health in mind,
