What's For Dinner?

Last night's dinner was too good not to share.  We made Carrot Coconut Soup and served it with cheese toast and slices of papaya and watermelon.  It was colorful and delicious.  There are several good recipes for Carrot Coconut Soup on the internet but the one we used is as follows:

Carrot Coconut Soup

1 large onion, chopped
2 T fresh ginger, sliced
4 medium cloves garlic, chopped
1 t curry powder
3 c vegetable broth or chicken broth
2 c sliced carrots, about 1/4 inch thick
1 c sweet potato, cut into about 1/2 inch cubes
5 oz canned coconut milk
salt and pepper to taste

Chop onion.  Saute it over medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring often.
Add garlic and ginger and continue to saute for another minute.
Add curry powder and mix well with onions.
Add broth, carrots, and sweet potato.  Simmer on medium high until vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes.  Add coconut milk.
Blend in batches.  Add salt and pepper to taste.
Return to pot and reheat before serving.
