Carrot-Coconut-Lime Soup

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons coconut or olive oil (we used coconut oil)
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 teaspoons chile paste (The original recipe says you could use something like sriracha or sambal oelek, we used sambal oelek.)
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 medium onions, coarsely chopped (3 cups)
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 pound potatoes, peeled and coarsely chopped
  • 1 pound carrots, peeled and coarsely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt (we used kosher salt)
  • 5 ½ cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 (13.5-ounce) can coconut milk
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice

Directions

  1. Take a heavy 5-quart pot and pour the oil in, setting the heat to medium. Once the oil’s shimmering, add in 1 tablespoon of the cilantro as well as the chile paste, ginger and cumin, stirring constantly until they become fragrant (about 1 minute). Add the onions and garlic into the pot now, stirring frequently for roughly 5 minutes or until the onions have become translucent. Now stir in the potatoes, carrots, and salt, stirring now and then for 5 minutes.
  2. Pour the broth and coconut milk into the pot and turning the heat up if necessary, bring the soup up to a boil. Once boiling, turn the heat down to medium-low and simmer for 20 minutes or long enough for the vegetables to get soft. Stir in the lime juice and you’re ready for the next step !
  3. Doing this in multiple batches, purée the soup with either a blender or food processor (we used our blender) until the soup is really smooth (we used the puree setting on our blender to get a smooth consistency). Once all the soup’s puréed, garnish with remaining cilantro (we just put the remaining cilantro on our individual servings).

Serves 8 (1 1/3 cup per serving).
