Curried Carrot Soup

Curried Carrot Soup

I first made this Curried Carrot Soup one afternoon over my winter break. I’d been curled up on the couch for a couple hours attempting to write an essay and blowing my nose every couple minutes. Despite the fuzzy purple socks I was wearing my feet were freezing, and I’d been re-writing the same sentence for 15 minutes, so I decided I needed a soup break.

It was a few days after Christmas, so the fridge was a little bare, but I found a bag of baby carrots in the crisper and rounded up some spicy seasonings to help kick my cold.

I made up the recipe as I went, crossing my fingers that it would turn out well, and in 20 minutes I was back on the couch with a cozy, spicy bowl of soup bursting with vitamins and flavor.

So if you have a cold, are feeling cold, or are just in search of a quick lunch or simple comfort food, this Curried Carrot Soup is the recipe for you.
