Thai Coconut Curry Carrot Soup

Thai Coconut Curry Carrot Soup

I love cooking with Thai flavors, and this delicious Thai Coconut Curry Carrot Soup is creamy and sweet from the coconut base but still has a kick from the curry paste. It's perfect to make during your Sunday meal prep and keep on hand throughout the week! You can also make this in the pressure cooker or instant pot. If you make it on the stove like I did, I recommend using a heavy-bottomed or enameled cast iron pot, since you have to let the soup simmer for at least two hours. That way, the carrots become tender enough to blend! If you make it in the pressure cooker/instant pot it wouldn't take nearly as long. 

To blend this soup, I used an immersion blender, otherwise known as a hand blender. It is amazing for soups and pureeing! You can also transfer everything to high speed regular blender to mix. 

This recipe is gluten free and vegan friendly. If you don't have concerns about it being vegan, you can use bone broth or a chicken/beef broth instead of vegetable stock. I think this soup just begs from some crusty or fluffy bread on the side, so enjoy it with your favorite gluten free bread. If you are not gluten free, I love it with naan or fresh sourdough. Enjoy!

Here's what you need for this Thai Coconut Curry Carrot Soup:

  • Avocado oil -- I love this Avocado Oil from Primal Kitchen
  • Garlic
  • Yellow onion
  • Canned full fat coconut milk
  • Curry paste -- I use red curry paste, and you can usually find this in the international aisle of most grocery stores. This Thai Kitchen Red Curry Paste is a great option
  • Coconut aminos or soy sauce
  • Vegetable stock, or any kind of stock or broth
  • Curry spice mix
  • Ground ginger
  • Carrots
  • Salt, chili flakes, bread for serving
