Creamy Carrot Curry Comfort

Creamy Carrot Curry Comfort

This soup can be served as a starter at an elegant dinner party or enjoyed alone for a warming lunch. The sweetness of the carrots pairs well with the toasty spiciness of the curry powder. The addition of U.S. rice gives this lovely orange soup a hearty texture.

What You’ll Need:

Ingredients

2 tbsp butter 25 mL
2-3 tsp curry powder 10-15 mL
1 tsp salt 5 mL
1 medium onion, finely chopped 1
4 medium carrots, shredded 4
4-1/2 cups chicken broth, divided 1.125 L
3 cups cooked Tex Farm long grain white rice
750 mL
1 cup whipping cream 250 mL

Directions

In large stockpot, melt butter over medium-high heat. Blend in curry powder and salt, stirring constantly for 30 seconds. Add onion and carrots; cook, stirring often, until vegetables are softened, 7 to 9 minutes. Transfer mixture to blender or food processor. Add 1-1/2 cups (375 mL) broth to vegetables; blend but don’t puree. Return mixture to stockpot; stir in remaining broth and rice. Heat over medium-high heat until hot, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in cream.

Makes 6 to 8 servings.
