Souper Tasty


I saw this soup on Instagram and on one of our cold Tucson days I decided I had to make it.  I made a large batch, serving it that night for dinner, then making up several containers.  I brought a few containers to my mother and froze the rest. 

It was delicious!  If you're interested in trying it, the recipe is below:

Sweet Potato and Carrot Soup with Coconut Milk

1.5 pounds of sweet potatoes, washed and cut in half
1 pound of carrots, peeled
5 tablespoons of olive oil
2 onions, peeled and cut in half
1 full head of garlic (cut the top off the garlic bulb to roast with the vegetables)
2.5 cups of vegetable stock
1 can of coconut milk (13.5 oz. can)
Salt & Pepper to taste

Place the halved sweet potatoes, peeled carrots, halved onions, and head of garlic into a baking dish.  Drizzle olive oil over all of the vegetables.
Season generously with salt and pepper.
Cover the roasting pan with foil.
Road them in a 350-degree oven for 30-40 minutes, or until they are tender and caramelized. Depending on their size, cooking times may vary.
Once the vegetables are done roasting, remove them from the oven and let them cool a bit.
Add all the vegetables to a blender.  Squeeze the roasted garlic from its skin and add to the blender.
Add vegetable stock and blend.
Transfer the mixture to a large pot.  Stir in the coconut milk.
Add more salt and pepper to taste if needed.
Heat the soup until it's hot, but avoid bringing it to a boil.
Spoon into bowls, top with a swirl of coconut milk if desired, and serve.

This soup is excellent with a loaf of crusty bread.
