Winter season is here, and all I can think about is warm soup! There is nothing more comforting than cozying up with a blanket next to the fireplace, enjoying a nice warm bowl of nutritious and hearty veggie soup and this Tomato Coconut Curry Soup really hits the spot.
You won’t believe how tasty this easy soup recipe is and it contains an abundant dose of nutritious root veggies – yams, carrots, potatoes, tomatoes and warming curry spice which is absolutely wonderful for warming the body and offers a boost in circulation, and nutritional yeast which offers vitamin B12, wonderful for those on a plant-based diet.
A touch of coconut milk takes it up a notch, offers a dose of hydrating electrolytes, and created a creamy, dreamy, and oh so comforting element to this soup. When time is short, try this delightful soup recipe. It’s quick, satisfying, and good enough to serve company if you are having a large family dinner, and wont break your budget.
This coconut curried veggie soup is hearty enough, you can enjoy it on its own, you can enjoy it with a think and crusty chunk of “healthy bread recipe”, or as an appetizer to your dinner.
As we always want to keep the fat content low in our recipes here, the fat in the coconut milk offers us a benefit; by adding this healthier fat and a dash of black pepper, these two together act as an amplifier of the anti-inflammatory effects, by binding to the curcumin (anti-inflammatory compound found in turmeric) in the curry and increasing its bioavailability by 2000%! This means by adding coconut (fat) and freshly cracked black pepper, your body absorbs the curcumin that much more!
You could also use fire roasted tomatoes, which I find add a nice smoky flavor.
Thank goodness for soups! It’s these kind of warm and comforting soup recipes that keeps me going strong all winter long!
