Curry Carrot Soup

This is my favorite thing to cook.

Ingredients:

Carrots

bullion

Onions

Curry powder

Other veggies

(optional: sour cream, hot sauce)

If I am going all in, this is what I do…  I sauté some onions in olive oil.  I boil a bunch of carrots (and potatoes, zucchini, whatever similar veggies that appeal to me that day) with bullion until they are tender.  Then I add some of the onions (not all) and blend they are tender — basically a mush.  I put this back in a pot and add the rest of the onions, curry (to taste) and heat.  I serve with Morningstar Farms crumbles, sour cream and hot sauce.  My personal favorite is Pete’s but it works with any.

And now you have what I eat all the time.  PS.  I have lost more than 20 lbs by eating this a lot…  This can be vegan if you want that.  The Morningstar Farms stuff has gluten (I think it needs protein but tofu would also work).  Every Sunday I make a big batch and use it as a base for what I eat for lunch for the week.  I have to admit that I hate eating but this is the one recipe that I like.

Sometimes I do a trimmed down version where I just boil some carrots in soup and add the curry.

 

Curry carrot soup

This is what I made for dinner.  It was delicious.  How can you make this?  Well, this version was the bare-bones version.  You are looking at:soup

I cut up some carrots and put them in boiling water with bouillon cubes.  I cook them until they are very soft. Then I purée the carrots, add curry (to taste).  Add cooked meal starters.  Serve with hot sauce and sour cream.

When I am feeling more ambitious I:

  • Sautée some onions — some go into the puré, some are saved and added to the mixture with the curry.
  • Include potatoes (white or sweet), zucchini, other veggies I think work with carrots.
