I’d like to thank the curry

Hi guys! How’s your day going? I JUST woke up… and feel a thousand times better! :D The pilot had it way worse than I did, so hopefully by tomorrow he’ll be back to semi-normal :)

Last night, I really wanted to make soup for dinner since we were both feeling so sicky. I’m not really a “soup” person. I LOVE vegan chili, but that’s pretty much where it ends. I’d rather chew my food than slurp it from a spoon ;)

Anyway, last night was the first time I’ve made soup in the three years we’ve lived here.

curry soup (5)

Carrot Curry Soup

Adapted from my brain

I sweat out 1/2 a large onion and 1 bag (16oz) of rough-chopped organic carrots in a little olive oil, on medium-high heat for 7 minutes

curry soup

To that I added a generous amount of sea salt and pepper, 1 T curry powder, 1/4 t cumin, 1/4 t garam masala, 1/4 t garlic powder, pinch of coriander and stirred well to combine

curry soup (2)

Then the liquid went in: 2 C organic veggie broth and 1/2 C almond milk

curry soup (3)

I brought it up to a boil, reduced to simmer, covered and let it simmer for 45 minutes.

Next, I used my handy hand blender that Mara sent me -speaking of Mara, she’s having a goat cheese giveaway if any of ya’ll are interested!- to blend the soup (or you could blend in batches in the blender)

soup

Taste and adjust seasonings as necessary- mine needed more sea salt and a pinch of Stevia

Drizzle with olive oil to serve (I used Garlic Gold)

curry soup (4)

It was so. good. and made our house smell heavenly :)

I devoured my bowl of soup… the pilot ate about half of his and that’s why I think I feel so much better today ;) Drink your soup, yo.

B-fast was bfast cookie dough cereal:

oats

(Bfast cookie minus the smashed banana, + more milk, sliced banana, cacao nibs, maca and cinnamon)

Yeahhhhhh :D

The plan for the day:

-Make some tea and bfast for the pilot

-WORKOUT! I feel recovered from the fitness conference and well enough to get my sweat on

-Deep mushy feely-feely blog post (in honor of Operation Beautiful’s release) :D

-Train a client

-Dinner with the girls

Have a wonderful day! <3

    I always crave soup when I’m sick, I swear it makes me feel better. That carrot curry soup looks delish, as soon as fall hits I’ll have to give it a try, there’s no way I can eat hot soup when its 100 degrees out :)

  8. What other veggies do you think could be substituted in this soup? I LOVE curry but really don’t like cooked carrots (love them raw but strangely can’t stand them cooked). Glad you’re feeling better :)

  9. I just tried the breakfast cookie for the first time this morning. YUM! I will have to try the cereal version next.

    So glad you are feeling better.

  10. Let Food be thy medicine, and let medicine be thy food! Glad you’re feeling better! Have a great day!

  11. That looks AWESOME! I started getting sick yesterday, a throat/ear thing. Hopefully it will go away. I’m having Indian for lunch today :)

  12. Oh I need to put this on my fall list of soup’s to try! I know nothing about curry, so I’d love to try something new :)

  13. Excited to read your OB post! I just posted my own!

  14. Definitely bookmarking this – I love thick creamy soups, yum!

  15. That soup looks delicious, go brain! ;)

  16. That soup looks very good! Glad that you are feeling better!

  17. Glad you’re feeling better. That soup is gorgeous…I love the color!

  18. I AM MAKING THIS RIGHT NOW. Well, when I get off the Internet at least. I am lacking food inspiration and don’t really feel like going to the store so I was trying to think of something I can do with what I have in the fridge, but nothing was coming to me. So yay, thanks!

    Also, I find it interesting that you love smoothies but are not a fan of soup. I always assumed my love of smoothies was because I *love* blended food. But I agree you do have to be in a special kind of mood for soup.

    Glad y’all are feeling better!

  19. ahh i’m so glad you’re feeling better and was able to get a good night of sleep! sometimes sleeping it off is the best thing in the world :)
    and awesome curry recipe. since i don’t cook i’m going to have to find someone to make it for me hahaha

  20. That soup sounds delicious!!! And it doesn’t seem terribly hard to make.

    Glad to hear that you are feeling better :-D

  21. I love curried-spiced soups! This one looks fantastic – and pretty easy. woohoo.
    Another woohoo for you feeling better!! :)

  22. That soup sounds yummy I must try it soon!

  23. That soup sounds amazing!! Glad it served as an elixir :)

  24. Oh my gosh that sounds SO tasty :) good to see you’re feeling better.

    Can’t wait for your post in honor of Operation Beautiful! :)

  25. Yum! That soup sounds soo good! I’m going to write that down!

    Today I’m going to be kickin’ my butt, since I literally didn’t leave my apartment yesterday, haha! (Almost literally couldn’t move.)
    Fuuuuuuuuuun :)

  26. this soup looks delicious… I wanted to see goat cheese crumbled on top… ;)

  27. Glad you feel better!! Now get your hubby back to health ;)

    xxoo

  28. I’m glad you feel better Gina!! I hope your pilot will feel better soon too :-) Thank you for sharing your soup recipe! I’m gonna try it the next days :-D Sounds and looks delicious!!

  29. I’m glad youre feeling better! this carrot curry soup looks delicious!

  30. Glad you are feeling better! :)

  31. Do you let the breakfast cookie rest overnight like normal before you turn it into cereal, or do you put it all together at once? Sorry if you’ve already answered that :)

  32. Anything curry gets my vote. Glad you are feeling better!

  33. full day as usual! So glad you’re feeling better! I made one of your curry recommendations last night – SO good. I’ll post tomorrow!

  34. “Adapted from my brain”—LMAO!!!!!!

    So happy you are feeling better!

    I am the only person I know who’s never made soup in her Vita. Never! I know, crazy, huh. I don’t have a stick/immersion blender either so if I am gonna do it, I think I need to brush up on my Vita soupey skills. haha! Seriously girl that soup looks great and you and me are the same with the no soup making in years…as in at least 5 for me? I was pregnant so there ya go, almost 5 yrs ago!

    Have a beautiful day and looking fwd to the touchy feely post :)

    xo

  35. Glad you’re feeling better! I love eating spicy stuff when I’m sick, since it’s one of the only ways to taste anything!

    I almost never make soup in the summer, but I love it when it cools off outside! (also makes for easy leftovers!)

  36. Curry is supposed to be a natural antibiotic. Maybe it helped you! When I get sick, I add both curry and garlic to my food.

  37. That soup looks divine. I’m currently obsessed with a lentil and bulgur soup I had in Turkey. I made a batch every week. It’s just so good!

  38. Curry soups sounds great -it’s actually a little chilly here in Montreal (a welcome respite after US heat) and soup would make a perfect dinner tonight!

  39. That soup looks insanely good. I have been craving soup like crazy lately. I think it’s because I so desperately want it to be fall. =P Looking forward to your Operation Beautiful inspired post!

  40. I can’t decide what looks tastier..the curry soup or the breakfast cookie dough! xx

  41. Glad you’re feeling better! That soup looks so freaking good. Do you think it would still be tasty as a chunky style soup and not blended? My boyfriend has texture issues, and a blended version would not be well received (wait a second….that might mean more for me…hmmm)

    • Fitnessista says:

      yeah– you could even take half of it out, blend the rest and then add back in the half of chunky carrots and onions. that would be delish :)

  42. That soup looks great! I think I am definitely going to try that. I can’t wait to read your post for Operation Beautiful!

  43. Can’t go wrong with a good bowl of soup, especially when it is curry flavored.

  44. this reminds me of a recipe I make which you would LOVE.

    Roasted Curried Carrot Hummus: http://lerecipesforsuccess.wordpress.com/2010/08/03/blessed/

  45. I’m not usually a soup person either because it never fills me up. This looks really good though! :)

  46. So glad you are feeling better!Looking forward to the mush ;)

  47. Stephanie says:

    Made this soup today- it was awesome!!! I tried other carrot/soups and they never came out right. Thanks for the recipe:)

  48. Yummy! Yum!

    I didnt have garam masala, which would be a big component of flavor. Im going to look for some online. But it still turned out good, and I served it with pecans and raisins.

Speak Your Mind
