Creamy Carrot and Coconut Milk Soup with Thai Red Curry

This delicious soup can be made with carrots, butternut squash or sugar pie pumpkins. Thai curries are chili paste blends so their flavors are complex and spicy. Use a little or a lot depending on your preference.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 7 to 8 carrots, scrubbed and sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon red curry paste
  • 1/4 cup sweet chili sauce
  • 1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • Squeeze of fresh lime juice

Preparation

  1. In a heavy soup pot, heat the oil over medium heat and sauté the garlic and ginger for 1 minute. Add the broth and carrots and simmer until the carrots are tender (about 15 minutes). Allow to cool slightly and then puree the mixture in batches in a blender or food processor. (Or use an immersion blender directly in the pot, which works very well.)
  2. Return the pureed carrot mixture to the pot. Add the curry paste, chili sauce, soy sauce and black pepper and bring to a simmer. Cook for 5 minutes. Stir in the coconut milk, cilantro and lime juice. Adjust the seasoning with more curry paste and/or soy sauce.
  3. Serve drizzled with a bit of coconut milk and lime wedges on the side.
