Roasted Carrot Soup with Coconut - It's Not Complicated Recipes #soup #souprecipes #vegan #vegetarian #easyrecipes #coconut

Sometimes, a warming bowl of soup is exactly what I crave. My Roasted Carrot Soup with Coconut is nourishing, flavoursome and simple to prepare.

Since commencing my food blogging journey, I have been delighted with the connections I have made.

I regularly communicate with bloggers worldwide, and although we haven’t met in person, I hold them very close to my heart. Does it Work? by Natalie is a blog I started to follow many months ago. Natalie is on a wellness journey and shares her findings, tips and tricks on her blog. Immediately, I felt a connection with Natalie, as we share many of the same values and beliefs.

Today I share with you my recipe for Roasted Carrot Soup with Coconut, which I have written for Natalie’s blog.

I chose the humble carrot as my star ingredient for several reasons:

  • They’re a great pantry staple to have on hand as they make the ideal snack. When you roast the carrots, you will find they get a slight caramel flavour. This works beautifully in the soup and also my Sweet and Sour Carrot Salad;
  • Carrots contain vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fibre;
  • They provide the soup with an enticing colour;
  • It seems like an appropriate choice for this time of year, with Easter just around the corner!

Much like my Roasted Carrot Hummus, I begin the soup preparation by washing, peeling and chopping my carrots.

I roast the carrots with a little olive oil and a sprinkling of salt. Once they are cooked through, I remove them from the oven. I saute an onion and clove of garlic in a little oil. Once the onion is translucent, add the cooked carrot. Season the vegetables well, and add your spices. I top the vegetable and spice mixture with stock and bring to a simmer. Blend your mixture to a smooth consistency, and add the coconut milk. Warm through, and check that your seasoning is to your taste. Serve the soup with a garnish of spring onions or chives.

Ingredients

  • 500 g carrots peeled and chopped
  • 3 tsp olive oil 2 tsp for roasted, 1 tsp for frying
  • 1 medium brown onion sliced into half moons
  • 1 clove garlic you can chop or leave whole
  • 1/4 tsp dried coriander
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 2 1/2 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • sea salt and black pepper to taste

Garnish:

  • spring onions/scallions or chives optional

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 200 Degrees C (390 F).

    Chop carrots into small pieces (approximately 1 inch/2.5 cm).

    Place in a roasting dish with 2 teaspoons of oil and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.

  2. Roast the carrots for approximately 35 minutes, or until they are tender.

    Remove from the oven and set aside.

  3. Add 1 teaspoon of oil to a saucepan.

    Chop your onion into half moons. Add the onions and your garlic clove to the oil, and cook until the onion is translucent. 

    Add your carrots to the onion mixture, along with your spices and vegetable stock.

  4. Blend your mixture to a smooth consistency. Add the coconut milk and check your seasoning.

    Serve with a garnish of spring onion/scallions or chives.

Recipe Notes

* The recipe serves 4 people as a starter or 2 generous main portions. If served with a toasted sandwich etc. it would easily serve 4 people for dinner.

* This soup freezes well – you can easily make a larger portion and freeze the extras.

* This soup is designed to be thick – if you prefer a thinner consistency, add more vegetable stock or some water.

* Always check the freshness of your dried spices – if they have been in your pantry for a while, they may have lost their intensity. As such, you may need to add a little extra.
