Ingredients

6 carrots, cut into thin rounds 600 g
1 onions, finely chopped 200 g
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 tbsp butter, unsalted 14 g
3 1/2 tsp curry powder 10 g
2 cups chicken broth 500 mL
2 3/4 cups water 700 mL
1/2 cup cream 15% 125 mL
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

A mandolin will make slicing the vegetables easier.

A blender or food processor will be very useful to purée the soup.

Method

  1. Prepare the carrots: slice them into thin rounds, finely chop the onion and garlic.
  2. In a pot, sweat the onion and garlic in butter over medium heat for about 3-4 min. Add the carrots and sauté a few minutes. Add the curry and cook 1 min with stirring. Add salt and pepper. Pour in the broth and water. Bring to a boil, lower the heat, cover and simmer until the carrots are tender, about 20 min.
  3. Purée the soup in a blender or processor, then pour it back into the pot. Stir in the cream and just warm the soup a few minutes. Adjust the seasoning and serve.

Remarks

The soup keeps up to 7 days in the refrigerator or up to 4 months in the freezer. Cream should not be added before freezing, but later when the soup is reheated.

I regularly make this recipe, but I put less curry since it might be too spicy for me (3 tea spoons for 8 servings). I also add some flour (around 3-4 table spoons for 8 servings) at the same time of the curry so the consistence is thicker. I do not always add cream or milk, it depends on the thickness and the spicyness (it it is too spicy, add milk or cream).

Made it twice. It is excellent! Here are some tips: after it cooks, let it rest in the fridge for a day. I only put it through the blender the next day: it was delightful, tastier, and nicely thick. It doesn't need the cream, but it is smoother with it. Another tip: once in purée form, pass it through a strainer. Enjoy!

Very tasty, though my blender did not allow for a good puree. (Spilled all over the place, watch out for rubber lids)

I would make it again but add more carrots and no cream. I found it takes away from the great taste of carrots.
