Curried Carrot Soup

If you like a bit of heat, use hot Madras curry powder in this recipe. Serve as a light lunch or as an appetizer before supper.


  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 3 medium carrots, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 4 medium celery, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
  • 5 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • freshly ground pepper, to taste


Step 1
Cook oil and curry powder in a large saucepan over medium heat, stirring, until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in carrots, celery and onion; toss to coat in oil. Cook, stirring frequently, for 10 minutes. 
Step 2
Stir in broth. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the vegetables are very tender, about 10 minutes.
Step 3
Remove from the heat; let stand 10 minutes. Lay a paper towel over the surface of the soup to blot away the oil that has risen to the top. Discard the paper towel.
Step 4
Working in batches of no more than 2 cups at a time, transfer the soup to a blender and puree (use caution when pureeing hot liquids). 
Step 5
Return the pureed soup to the pan, place over medium heat and heat through. Season with lemon juice, salt and pepper.
