Spiced Carrot Soup

(Serves 4)

Ingredients

1 dsp coconut oil
1 medium onion, sliced
10 medium carrots, roughly chopped
2l veg stock
1 can coconut milk
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp dried chilli flakes
½ tsp grated ginger (or lazy ginger)
¼ clove nutmeg, grated
3 bay leaves

Method

  • Put soup pan on a med/high heat and melt the coconut oil. Add onions and cook until soft but not coloured. Add garlic, seasoning and spices and cook for a further couple of minutes. Add in the carrots, stir everything through and allow to saute for a minute or 2 before pouring over stock. Add in bay leaves, bring to the boil, then turn down heat, cover and allow to simmer for 20 mins or so.
  • Pick out bay leaves (faffy but important), stir in the coconut milk and blend it all together to a smooth consistency. Add in lemon and fresh herbs if you’re using them, and enjoy!
