I have been wanting to make soup for a really long time. I finally got around to it. The recipe is so simple – anyone can do it! I used elana’s pantry’s recipe as a base.
1lb of carrots
1 medium sized apple
1 medium sized onion
1 tablespoon chopped ginger
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 can of coconut milk (I used a 560ml can)
I followed a very similar process to Elana. Heat the coconut oil in a large saucepan and chop the onion, carrots and apple into large chunks. Saute the onion, carrots and apple in coconut oil until tender. It took about 15 minutes for me to do this on medium heat. Add ginger to the saucepan and stir in. Put this mixture into your Vitamix and add the coconut milk. Puree the mixture. I transferred the pureed mixture back to the saucepan and brought to boil.
I did not use chicken stock or water as per Elana’s recipe. Believe it or not I completely missed reading that line! My soup was very thick (tasty, but thick). Next time I’ll be adding water. I do not drink orange juice (google it – you might stop drinking it too!) and did not have any oranges to make my own juice so skipped using this too. Next time I’ll add homemade orange juice and see what happens. I’ll also add some crunchy veggies like broccoli or celery. I think it would really compliment the soup.
The soup is filling. The recipe made about 5 cups of soup and lasted us a couple of days. Enjoy!
