This colorful soup is both simple and delicious. Use apples that cook up soft; McIntosh are great.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in a large saucepan or medium soup pot over medium heat. Stir in onion and celery; cook until the onion is softened and translucent, 8 to 12 minutes; do not brown.

  • Stir in curry powder, then add carrots, apples and bay leaf. Stir well over medium heat for 2 minutes, then add broth and salt. Bring the mixture to a low boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cover tightly and simmer until the carrots and apples are tender, 20 to 25 minutes.

  • Remove the bay leaf. Using a large slotted spoon, transfer the soup solids to a food processor, adding about 12 cup of the broth; process to a smooth puree. Pour the puree back into the soup. Reheat and season with pepper. Serve piping hot, garnishing each serving, if you like, with a dab of yogurt and a sprinkle of fresh herbs.


Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 3 months.

Yummy Curried Carrot & Apple Soup Very delicious soup with complex flavors. Not too sweet but just sweet enough. Warm filling a little spice... I added one leek bulb and some cinnamon to my recipe. It was delicious. I'd recommend it. I post food pics on instagram @monkeybear88 Pros: Great fall soup. Hot sweet with a little spice creamy without the dairy. Nutritious & delicious. Cons: Lacking texture. Sprinkling on some pine nuts and raisins makes for a wonderful garnish. Read More
