Curried Coconut Carrot Soup

This was a delightful surprise.  I was wanting to use up some of the abundance of carrots in our fridge and decide to make this soup.  It was delicious and I was shocked that my 5 year old even asked for seconds!  Score.


  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp ground cumin
  • 1 Tbsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp tumeric
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp red curry paste (I used Thai Kitchen brand), more if you want it spicy
  • 10 good sized carrots (about 2.5 lbs)
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cans coconut milk
  • 1/2 tsp salt, or to taste

Saute onion dry, in olive oil, or in water.  After 2 minutes, add spices and curry paste.  Saute while you chop the carrots.  Add carrots, put a lid on and saute 5 minutes.  Add water and coconut milk.  Bring to a boil, then turn down and simmer covered, until carrots are very tender.  Transfer to a blender to puree or use an immersion blender.  Puree until very smooth.  Add salt to taste and mix well (or blend some more).  Enjoy!

    Can’t remember if I’ve commented yet, I’ve been meaning to! This was great! Loved using the red curry paste in it.
