GARAM MASALA CARROT SOUP
One pot wonders are my favorite type of recipes and more often than not, they tend to be the most satisfying.
For one, hello easy clean up , and two, you don't have to spend hours in the kitchen prepping.
This soup is pure gold. Its thick, creamy, subtly sweet, and perfectly spiced. When you grow accustomed to using spices in your cooking you will never go back!! They are what allow your most simple recipes to shine and that is exactly what brings me to this little guy.
Don't let the name scare you. Garam masala is a spice blend made of all your favorites — cinnamon, cumin, cloves, coriander, nutmeg, peppercorn, and a few other stars. Yall it is divine on just about anything, but it takes this soup to another level. Also, your kitchen will smell like heaven after whipping a batch of this up!
Im telling ya, if you are a fan of pureed soups— get on this.
I n g r e d i e n t s2 tbsp avocado oil (coconut or olive are fine!)
4 heaping cups peeled, then chopped carrots. About 1 inch pieces.
1.5 medium/ large yellow onions, chopped into 1 inch pieces
2 tsp garam masala
3/4 tsp sea salt
Few pinches cayenne
1 can full fat coconut milk (light will work but soup is much better with full fat)
1 1/4 cup water to start .
D i r e c t i o n s
Preheat oven to 425. In a large bowl place your chopped carrots and onion. Add your oil, garam masala, salt, few pinches cayenne pepper (if you like spicy). Mix well.
Spread the mixture on a foil lined baking sheet (your largest), try to not clump. Roast for about 30 (stirring half way) minutes, or until fork tender
While this is cooking, heat a small pot over medium heat and add in your can coconut milk and 1 1/4 cup water. Bring to a low boil. Once ready pour into your blender.
When your carrots and onions are done, transfer them into your blender and blend! If you do not have a high powered blender, do in batches.
Once blended, taste and adjust seasonings (salt, pepper, cayenne, garam masala) or add water for a thinner consistency! Pour back into your pot to warm or serve out of blender!!
