Ingredients

  • 1 T coconut oil
  • 1 large onion (diced)
  • 1 -2 Tbsp. Thai red curry paste* (1.5 Tbsp. is about the right spice level for me)
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 2 lbs. carrots peeled and chopped into 1" pieces (about 6 cups chopped)
  • 4 cups broth (vegetable or chicken)
  • 1 tsp. salt (or less if using a high sodium broth)
  • 13.5 oz. canned coconut milk (13.5 oz., I used lite)
  • 2 Tbsp. lime juice

Garnish

  • 2 Tbsp. roughly chopped cilantro
  • 1 lime cut into wedges
  • 1/4 cup roasted peanuts
  • Crushed red pepper flakes optional

Instructions

  • Heat coconut oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and cook until starting to brown (4-5 minutes).
  • Add curry paste and garlic and sauté 1 minute longer. Add carrots and broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 20 - 25 minutes until carrots are soft.
  • Use an emersion blender (or transfer to a food processor or blender) and blend until smooth. Add coconut milk, salt, and lime juice (return to pan first if using a food processor or blender) and heat to a simmer. Let simmer for 5 minutes to let flavors meld.
  • Ladle soup into bowls and garnish with cilantro, roasted peanuts, lime wedges, and crushed red pepper flakes.

Notes

* I use that I buy at the Asian superstore, but they sell it on Amazon too.
