Description

This Thai ginger carrot soup is pure comfort food and is ready in under thirty minutes if you make it in a pressure cooker. The flavours are bold, the texture is creamy, the recipe healthy and it becomes a complete meal if you top it with some noodles!


Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon Oil
  • 2 tablespoons Thai red curry paste
  • 1 inch piece Ginger, peeled
  • 1 small Onion, roughly diced
  • 810 large Carrots, peeled and roughly diced
  • 2 cups Water or Vegetable Broth ((I prefer water))
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoons Peanut Butter
  • Noodles, roasted peanuts and lime juice for topping

Instructions

  1. Traditional Pressure Cooker: Heat oil and add the red thai curry paste, ginger and onions for a few minutes. Add the carrots, water (or broth) and salt. Bring the pressure cooker to high pressure and cook for three whistles. Turn it off, and let the steam release naturally. Mix in the peanut butter and then blend using an immersion blender or wait for the soup to cool a bit before blending. Top with your favourite topping and serve hot.
  2. Instant Pot or Electric Pressure Cooker: Saute the red thai curry paste, ginger and onions in oil for a few minutes. Add the carrots, water (or broth) and salt. Set on high pressure for 12 minutes, and then do a quick release. Mix in the peanut butter and then blend using an immersion blender or wait for the soup to cool a bit before blending. Top with your favourite topping and serve hot.
  3. Stovetop Method: Heat oil and add the red thai curry paste, ginger and onions for a few minutes. Add the carrots, water (or broth) and salt. Bring it to a boil and then simmer till the carrots are cooked through and soft. Mix in the peanut butter and then blend using an immersion blender or wait for the soup to cool a bit before blending. Top with your favourite topping and serve hot.
