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.

What I am eating (or was) this year

As families across the globe sit down for meals that they have labored over, I am going to share what I have been eating.  You may want to write this down or print it to share with your loved ones, future generations even.  It’s just that good.

One of my favorite things to do is laugh at myself, not at the comedy I write but the dumb ass things I do.  With that idea in mind, I would like to share what was for a period of time, my absolute favorite thing to cook and eat.  This was not when I was five, this was earlier this year.

I call this “crap I have in the apartment,” here’s how you make it:

Ingredients:

Directions:

Take the Morningstar Farms meal starters and put as much as you want in a saucepan with some water.  Boil for a few minutes.  Reduce heat and add (to taste), corn, hot sauce, pasta sauce, salsa and brussel sprouts.  Heat until hot (d’uh).  Serve with the salad dressing.

Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it.  Or do.  Now that I have bought some other food, I have stopped eating it.  I have to tell you, my other option was dry cat food mixed with wasabi and that sure sounds worse, right?
