Simple and flavorful spiced vegan Carrot Curry Soup is made with a combination of vegetable broth and coconut milk! Hearty enough for a full meal or serve with a grilled panini sandwich!
My schedule is completely off and it’s all because the power went out on Sunday morning! I’m still wondering what caused the outage because the weather couldn’t be the culprit! It was a beautiful sunny weekend that me and 50,000 neighbors along the Peninsula were enjoying. Sheesh, we did not take into account that no power meant we would be without, a microwave, stovetop, computer, and if you didn’t get up before 7:00 a.m. like I did, then you started the day without coffee!
We tried to search for more coffee and hoped that 7-11 ran on a generator. Nope. No such luck! Restaurants and grocery stores sent their staff home and were closed for the rest of the day! My town got power back on about 2:00 pm, but Ashley and Michael who live just 10 minutes from us didn’t get their electricity until 11:30 in the evening!
Well, I didn’t get my grocery shopping done or any advance cooking for the blog, but I did spend time at the beach leisurely walking Abby and my grand-pup, Ricky. Ashley and Michael spent the day with us too, which is always a lot of fun for Alan and me. We’ve all had a busy month, so we haven’t been spending a lot of time together. It was nice to enjoy an afternoon with chit-chat and cocktails. When we started to get hungry we whipped up this simple Carrot Curry Soup!
This soup warms the tummy and has a nice contrast of flavors. The sweetness from the carrots are countered with the curry spice and other Fall spice favorites like ginger and cumin. Top each serving with cilantro, a dollop of sour cream or plain yogurt. Since this was our only meal for the day we served the soup with grilled cheese, avocado and spinach panini sandwiches. Ashley was in charge of making the sandwiches and since she is a vegan she skipped the cheese and probably the butter that I requested on my sandwich!
This soup is on the table in 30 minutes, which is a great dish to make and serve during busy evenings!
