Winter hasn’t been too terribly cold so far, but I’m still craving all the hearty, warming foods that come with the seasonal temperature change. Soup is one of my favourite winter foods, and the perfect way to warm the soul on a cold winter’s day. This simple carrot ginger bisque is a staple in my kitchen this time of year!
Carrot Ginger Bisque
- 2 Tbsp. coconut oil
- 1 yellow onion, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 Tbsp. fresh ginger, grated
- 4 cups vegetable broth
- 4 cups carrots, roughly sliced
- 2 sweet potatoes, roughly diced
- 2 stalks celery, roughly sliced
- 2 tsp. curry powder
- 1 can full-fat coconut milk (optional)
Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Sauté onion, garlic and ginger for approximately 5 minutes, or until onion is translucent. Pour in vegetable broth, then add vegetables and curry powder. Bring to a boil, then simmer over medium-low heat until vegetables are soft, about 20 minutes.
Remove from heat and add coconut milk if using. Transfer to a high-speed blender or food processor and purée until smooth. Garnish as desired and enjoy!
