Spicy Peanut Carrot Soup


Sometimes soup can be the perfect way to start the day. What most people don’t realize is that it doesn’t have to take a lot of prep time to concoct a killer soup chalk full of nutrients. I typically use my Vitamix when whipping up blended soups but an immersion blender can do the trick as well.

Ingredients

1 lb carrots unpeeled

1/4 sweet onion chopped

handful of parsley

2 tbsp coconut oil

3 tbsp organic peanut butter (unsweetened/unsalted) Note: You can sub any nut butter for peanut butter.

2 tbsp Wheat Free Tamari

1 Thai Pepper or hot pepper of your choice

2 cups hot water or vegetable stock

Dash of sea salt

NOTE: If you are NOT using a Vitamix or Blend-Tec blender, you will have separate directions.

Directions if using a Vitamix or Blend-Tec blender.

  1. Place water or stock at the bottom of the blender.
  2. Add carrots, onion and parsley.
  3. Blend on high until smooth.
  4. Add coconut oil, peanut butter, tamari, sea salt and Thai pepper.

Directions if using immersion blender or food processor.

  1. Place water or stock in a large pot with chopped carrots and onions.
  2. Bring to boil and then cook at med-high temperature for 15 minutes or until carrots are soft and onion is translucent in color.
