Sometimes being forced to improvise is a good thing.  In the case of this soup, it’s a great thing!  As I stared into my fridge hoping for inspiration, I could see that the only thing I really had ingredients for was a dinner salad.  That’s not normally such a bad thing.  I like salad, especially with meat or seafood in it.  But it was cold outside and I knew that a cold dinner was just not going to satisfy.  So I started to pursue ideas for soup.  I happened to have a couple bags of really nice crispy, sweet fresh baby carrots.  Aha!  Inspiration!  A simple soup (because I had so few ingredients in my fridge!) that is absolutely delightful!  I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!  Serves 3-4

Curry Cream of Carrot Soup


1.     Bring chicken broth to a rolling simmer over medium high heat.  Add onion and carrots and let simmer until carrots are extremely soft, about 35-40 minutes.
2.    Add ginger and curry and let cook another 5 minutes.
3.    Blend soup with an immersion blender until it is a smooth puree (you could also use a countertop model, being careful not to burn yourself).
4.    Add creamed coconut (I find it easiest to slice through the package with a sharp knife, and then store any leftovers in my fridge).


You can use coconut milk instead of chicken broth. And add more ginger and carmelize your onions. That is what I do because I don’t like curry.
The other thing I do is use cummun instead of curry in the original recipe.

Can i suggest using the spice blend for one of the other AIP friendly curry recipes Sarah has done 🙂
They are SO versatile I make up a big jar of the spice mixture and use it liberally in heaps of things! 🙂

Thank you for explaining that coconut butter is creamed coconut. Smile, I can get creamed coconut or coconut milk here in Germany – but I haven’t found coconut butter, yet. That is if I want to buy at my local stores instead of the Internet. 😉

Wow, this is soup is fabulous. I used lanb bone broth instead and my five year old gobbled it up. Thank you! Trying the leak on today 🙂
