How to Make Curried Apple, Potato and Carrot Soup
This carrot soup is simple to make.
Throw lots of carrots, celery, apples and potatoes into a big pot with some olive oil. Cook them until slightly softened then add curry powder, which is a spice blend with coriander, mustard seeds, cumin and more.
Next we add coconut milk and chicken stock. Then when the vegetables are softened, we use an immersion blender to puree the soup until creamy.
Just before serving, we stir in some half-and half, making it luxurious and serve it with a dollop of yogurt on top. If you wanted the soup to be dairy-free simply eliminate this from the recipe. It is still excellent without it. Or add a drizzle of our favorite tahini sauce on top instead.
