Ingredients

Directions

  • Cook oil and curry powder in a large saucepan over medium heat, stirring, until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in carrots, celery and onion; toss to coat in oil. Cook, stirring frequently, for 10 minutes. Stir in broth. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the vegetables are very tender, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat; let stand 10 minutes. Lay a paper towel over the surface of the soup to blot away the oil that has risen to the top. Discard the paper towel.

  • Working in batches of no more than 2 cups at a time, transfer the soup to a blender and puree (use caution when pureeing hot liquids). Return the pureed soup to the pan, place over medium heat and heat through. Season with lemon juice, salt and pepper.

Lacks carrot flavor This is a very tasty soup but to us it tasted more of curry and celery than carrots. I'm going to try again with half the curry and half the celery and a couple more carrots. Pros: Easy to make and delicious Cons: Tasted more like squash than carrots Read More

Yummy Indian Comfort Food My fiance and I loved this soup! We love spicey food so we used double the hot curry powder and lots of black pepper. It was spicy and sweet and delicious paired with naan. Will definitely make again would be perfect for autumn. Read More

I loved this dish and will definitely make again. I added more curry for an extra kick and topped with a little plain yogurt and it was delicious. Next time I may add some yogurt to the curry for a creamier texture. Lilly Denton TX Read More

I added a potato cut up in small pieces to the broth. It made the consistency of the soup richer. Carmen Miami FL Read More

This was another excellent soup from your website. The soup was a little thick for me so I used a little extra of the broth to thin it a bit and it was great! Sheri Shaw Franklin NH Read More

Very tasty - I added more curry as well as some coriander and chili pepper. Some fresh cilantro at the end was a nice touch. Doesn't really make much. Worth the trouble to double the recipe since it's a little time intensive for the average weeknight. Sara Colchester VT Read More

Was very good. Flavors stood out more after sitting a few hours. Would have been good as is but the lemon sea salt and coarse black pepper lightened and brightened. Served for dinner with freshly baked GF roll organic spinach salad milk and a decadent dessert. Read More

I hate throwing away the leftovers from juicing and found this a great way to use up the carrot scraps from my carrot juice. The soup turns out delicious and does not need to be blended. It is also a great soup to freeze to save for busy weeknights. Read More

Delicious! Next time I would make this I would double the recipe! I am a vegetarian so I used vegetable broth in place for the chicken broth. Pros: very easy to make and great flavor! Cons: did not make alot and calls for chicken broth Read More
