Curried Vegetable Soup ~ very healthy..







I found this little soup in my Better Homes & Gardens magazine this month.  I fell for how easy it is to make, just 20 minutes.  Easy, right up my alley.  And yes, it's done in a snap.  But, although I love soup and anything made with coconut milk, I found it just a little blah.  Nothing I can put my finger on, except that it needs something more.  So the next time I make it, I'll add some chopped garlic, fresh ginger and a little chopped jalepeno.  And I will make it again.  It has great potential. 

Like I said, it's a great week night meal, love that it's healthy too.  Oh, the bread is a great addition, so be sure to make it to enjoy with this little soup, it's yummy.

I did change one thing when I made this dish.  I added the coconut milk, chicken stock, curry powder and cauliflower first and let the cauliflower cook.  I then used my immersion blender and blended it to a small chunk, rather than leave the florets whole.  I liked it that way and I'll repeat it when I make this little soup again.

OH Mary, this soup looks so good.
can't wait to try this one when the weather gets cold. I made a big batch of chicken stock the other day so I'm half way there. Thanks for posting!

Thanks Regina,

I gave some of this soup to friends and they called to tell me it was their favorite new soup, lol!

And this soup took me minutes to throw together... :)

It was freezing (not really), but almost yesterday. Good soup weather.
