Carrot and Avocado Soup with Fruit Relish

You might not have considered using avocado in soup but the creamy consistency, coupled with the carrot and coconut milk, is a winner. A simple fruit relish tops it off.  (Serve chilled or room temperature)

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp. grapeseed oil
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped finely
  • 2-3 large carrots, steamed and chopped
  • 1 small Hass avocado, halved and seed removed
  • 1 tsp. fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 3/4 cup vegetable broth
  • 14 ounces nonfat coconut milk
  • 2 tsp. cornstarch
  • Sea salt, to taste

 

Fruit Relish Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup seeded pomegranate
  • 1/2 cup grated carrot
  • 2 Tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut
  • Zest and juice of one lime

 

Directions

In a medium saucepan, sauté onion until translucent. Set aside. Wash carrots. Steam or boil until fork tender, about 8 minutes.

In a blender, combine onion, carrots, avocado, ginger, broth and coconut milk and process until smooth and creamy. Return back to saucepan and add cornstarch. Heat for about 5 minutes.

In a separate bowl, combine relish ingredients. Ladle soup into a bowl and top with a teaspoon of fruit relish. Enjoy warm or at room temp.

Thank you very much for sharing this delicious and healthy recipe, Mareya!

Have a beautiful, healthy day!

With love & gratitude,
