Thai Coconut Curry Carrot Soup (recipe)

Serves: 6 | Prepping time: 15 mins | Cooking time: 40 mins
This week we have a Thai Coconut Curry Carrot Soup. The soup has a perfect balance of creamy coconut milk, spicy curry paste and sweet carrots.

Rich in vitamin A, fiber and antioxidants, carrots can contribute to healthy skin, improved vision and a strengthened immune system. In addition, carrots are naturally sweet and add a natural sweetness to the soup.

Coconut milk contains several important minerals including iron, potassium, magnesium but also some essential vitamins such as vitamins B11, C and E. Vitamin B is responsible for energy in your cells where vitamins C and E help improve your immune system.

Enjoy this flavorful and healthy Thai soup!

How to make this soup (how to prepare it)

  • Melt the coconut oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté for 5 minutes until soft. Now add the Thai curry paste and continue to sauté for a further minute.
  • Add the sweet potato, carrots and vegetable broth to the pot. Place a lid on top, and turn the heat up to medium-high. Allow the soup to come to a simmer, then turn the heat down to low and allow to simmer gently for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Use an immersion blender to blitz the soup until completely smooth, then add the coconut milk and stir to combine. If you wish, you can reserve a tablespoon or two of the coconut milk to garnish the finished soup.
  • Taste the soup and if needed add a little more salt or pepper. Garnish with fresh cilantro and a drizzle of sriracha.
