Creamy Curried Carrot Soup

Creamy Curried Carrot Soup

Tonight’s Stolen Recipe is a simple classic that uses the bounty of carrots and onions grown in the garden or plucked from the organic section of the supermarket, depending on your preference.  This version of the classic carrot soup was inspired by the large bag of carrots in my crisper and Robin Robertson’s “Curried Pumpkin Soup” recipe.  The creaminess comes from the white cannellini beans but you could substitute 2 (13.5oz) cans of unsweetened coconut milk or the equivalent of unsweetened soy milk if you prefer.  I brought some to work to “taste-test” it on my colleagues and it has been given the seal of approval by my non-vegan but veggie-loving friends.  Since the soup is pureed, run the veggies through the food processor to save time.  You can also double the batch and store half in the freezer for use later.  Serve it with thick slices of warm, toasty bread for a comforting meal on a chilly autumn afternoon.

Happy Cooking!!
