Curried Carrot Sweet Potato Soup…

When I came across this recipe for curried carrot and sweet potato ginger soup in a health magazine, I knew I had to try it.

My family craves Thai food occasionally, and there is a great restaurant here in Charleston called Basil, and we love to eat there from time to time.  The first time I made this luscious soup, it reminded me of some of those Thai flavors infused into their main dishes.

Although the curry and ginger lend to the spicy kick and flavors in this soup, which I found to be too strong for some palates, I needed to make a small adjustment.

So I decided to add in some lime juice to balance out some of the heat. It worked perfectly! 😉

My family LOVED it, and was so surprised with the flavors, it wowed them!

Definitely a different flavored soup, but regardless it is very satisfying.  Serve a bowl of soup with a grilled cheese and pear sandwich next to it and dinner is done!

The fall is always a lovely time of year. There’s nothing better than a bowl of comfort soup loaded with nutrients.  A great soup to reheat, or freeze to save it for another meal.
