After a eating adventure or just generally a period of eating rich food, I like to counteract it by making pureed vegetable soup. I love them. I love them for the flavor, simplicity of just vegetables and the health benefits. I feel awesome after eating these soups. This one had been on my list and after eating a lot of fried chicken (worth every bite), I was ready for some vegetables!
Joy the Baker had one that had been on my list, so I jumped right in. It came together fairly easily, however, I don’t know why I hand chopped everything instead of using the food processor. Fool. Maybe I wanted to feel the knife in my hand.
The coconut milk adds a creaminess and the proportions are spot on. Even though spring is sneaking in, I think I will throw this soup together again before summer’s arrival!
This soup reminded me of another soup that I love: Creamy Carrot and Chickpea Soup. This is probably heartier, because of the chickpeas, but it is a great vegan option.
