Ingredients

  • 1 Medium Red Onion (Chopped)
  • 1 tsp Crushed Garlic
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 2 tsp Red Curry Paste
  • 12 Large Carrots (chopped)*
  • 1 14oz (400ml) Can Coconut Milk
  • 3 cups (720ml) Vegetable Stock
  • 1/3 cup (83g) Peanut Butter
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Crushed peanuts and chopped cilantro for serving (optional)

Instructions

  1. Add the chopped onion and crushed garlic to a pot with the coconut oil and sauté until the onions are softened. Then add the red curry paste and sauté together.
  2. Add in the vegetable stock, coconut milk and chopped carrots. Bring to the boil and then turn down the heat, cover and simmer until the carrots are soft and cooked (about 25-30 minutes).
  3. Add the peanut butter and stir it in until well mixed. Then remove the soup from the heat and using an immersion blender blend until smooth. If you don’t have an immersion blender, then add the soup to your blender jug in stages and blend until smooth.

Notes

*12 large carrots is around 2 and 1/2 pounds of carrots (1.1kg).

*The coconut milk must be full fat unsweetened canned coconut milk.

*Nutritional information is a rough estimate of 1 serve (of 4) without additional toppings. However this is a large serving. If serving as an appetizer only, then this recipe will serve 6-8.
