This carrot soup is loaded with veggies and features vibrant curry paste and creamy coconut milk. And this big-batch recipe freezes well for up to 4 months. Enjoy this mildly spicy soup with a toasted mango-chutney-and-cheese sandwich, or thin the soup with more water or broth and use it as the base for a curry with chunks of firm white fish and broccoli.

Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 20 to 25 minutes. Add garlic and curry paste; cook, stirring often, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add coconut milk and water (or broth); bring to a simmer over high heat. Adjust heat to maintain a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are very soft, 30 to 40 minutes.
