Spicy Carrot Soup

As the weather cools down, what a better way to warm up then with a healthy soup that helps you lose those extra pounds at the same time. The curry in this Spicy Carrot Soup may raise your temperature, but the soup itself is light enough to satisfy your hunger without weighing you down. It is filling too, and even my three kids loved it! The soup is flavored with curry (so it’s not too spicy for kids). Curry powder has many health benefits such as cancer prevention, alzheimer’s disease prevention, heart health, bone health and more. Thank you to ZLiving for allowing me to share this recipe! It is our new fall favorite soup recipe

Yield:

4 servings

Ingredients:

3 tablespoons canola oil
2 teaspoons curry powder
8 medium carrots, peeled and thinly sliced
4 medium stalks celery, thinly sliced
1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
5 cups vegetable broth
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground pepper, to taste
1/4 cup plain nonfat yogurt

Preparation:

1. Stir oil and curry powder in a large saucepan over medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes. Add carrots, celery and onion. Stir in broth. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the vegetables are tender. Remove from heat; let stand 10 minutes.

2. Lay a paper towel over the surface of the soup to blot away the oil that has risen to the top. Once the soup has cooled, transfer it to a blender and puree in batches. Return the pureed soup to the pan and cook over medium heat. Season it with spices, fresh ginger, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Top each serving with nonfat yogurt (optional) and serve warm.
