How to Make Curried Apple, Potato and Carrot Soup

We love hearty soups that are thick and satisfying and this easy soup recipe absolutely delivers! Just like when making our creamy vegetable soup, we blend in potatoes to make the soup thick and creamy. In addition to the potatoes, this curried soup combines apples, celery, coconut milk, and just enough curry powder to add spice and amazing flavor.

How to Make Curried Apple, Potato and Carrot Soup

The soup is really simple to make. Start by adding lots of carrots, celery, apples and potatoes to a big pot with some olive oil. Cook them until slightly softened, and then add curry powder, which is a spice blend with coriander, mustard seeds, cumin and more.

Adding the curry powder

When there’s a little color on the vegetables and they are starting to soften, we add creamy unsweetened coconut milk as well as chicken or vegetable stock. [Here’s our homemade chicken stock as well as our recipe for homemade veggie broth]

After simmering for a 10 to 15 minutes, the vegetables and apple will be soften enough to blend. We use an immersion blender to puree the soup until creamy, but adding the soup to a blender will work, too.

Just before serving, as an optional step, you can stir in some half-and half or cream, making it luxurious. We also love to serve it with a dollop of yogurt on top. For a dairy-free soup, simply eliminate this from the recipe. It is still excellent without it. Or add a drizzle of our favorite tahini sauce on top, instead.

You Will Need

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 pound carrots, peeled and chopped (5 to 6 medium)

1/4 cup plain yogurt

Fresh chopped herbs such as dill or cilantro

Directions

    Stir in curry powder, red pepper flakes and 1 teaspoon of salt. Cook 2 minutes, and then add coconut milk and chicken stock. Simmer soup until the vegetables are soft, about 20 minutes.
