This simple soup is sublime. The sweetness of the carrots, butternut squash, and coconut milk mesh beautifully with the ginger, turmeric, and coriander to deliver a fabulous flavor that dances across your tongue while it massages your belly. And, this soup is as functional as it is flavorful. Loaded with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents, this soup is an immunity ace. This soup freezes really well, too!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a large pot over medium-high heat, warm the oil, and sauté the onion, garlic, ginger, turmeric, coriander, and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt for about 5 minutes, until the onion is soft and translucent and the spices are fragrant.
  • Add the carrots, butternut squash, broth, and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt. Increase the heat to high, and bring the soup to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-high, and simmer, mostly covered for about 20 minutes, until the vegetables are tender. Stir in the coconut milk, lime juice, pepper, and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Remove the soup from the stove, and allow the soup to cool slightly.
  • Transfer the soup to your blender, and blast on high for 30 to 60 seconds, until smooth and creamy. Add salt and lime juice to taste.
