Ingredients

  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 3 red peppers, roasted
  • 6 carrots chopped
  • ½ cup fresh basil chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of pureed ginger or1 tablespoon fresh ginger finely minced
  • 5 cups vegetable soup stock
  • ½ cup real coconut milk the stuff in the can, not the stuff in the big cartons
  • 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar

  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional carnish (pepitas are fun!)

  • Sautee the chopped onion in a little soup stock for a few minutes until soft, then add chopped carrot, the remaining soup stock, and the bay leaf.
  • Cover, bring to a boil and then simmer for about 20 minutes until the carrots are soft.
  • Once the pepper is roasted, remove from the oven, set to cool, then chop into 1-inch pieces.
  • Add pepper to the simmering soup and remove soup from heat.
  • Remove bay leaf and add coconut milk and fresh basil.
  • Using an immersion blender, puree soup until the desired level of creaminess while adding in lime juice, vinegar, and seasoning to taste.
