I love coconut and curry, so making a tasty coconut curry soup recipe that I could eat all winter long was a must!
This soup is great to bring with you in a thermos too. And as long as you heat your soup gently, it will still be raw (see tips below).
And besides tasting fantastic, coconut has lots of health benefits too.
Coconut Curry Soup recipe
Serves 4 as a main course.
You will need:
A blender or hand blender
A food processor (optional), or knife and cutting board
- 1 cup/60g dried coconut chips, soaked in 3 cups/720ml water (reserve the soak water as you’ll add that too), or use fresh coconut and same amount of water
- 3 large tomatoes, roughly chopped
- 4 scallions (spring onions), roughly chopped
- 2 medium carrots, roughly chopped
- 1 medium zucchini (courgette), roughly chopped
- ½ red pepper, cored, deseeded and roughly chopped
- 1 red onion (small), or 2 extra scallions (spring onions)
- 2 teaspoons curry powder
- 1 teaspoon maple syrup, honey or xylitol, or ½ a pitted date
- ¾ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon turmeric
- ½ teaspoon onion powder
- 1/3 teaspoon garlic powder
How you do it
Put the vegetables in a food processor to mince them, or chop by hand.
Then put half into a pan and the other half into the blender with the rest of the ingredients (the water, coconut and spices).
Blend well and pour into the pan.
Heat gently and serve. That’s it!
Rocking Raw Chef tips
- For those family members who crave meat or starch in their soup, you can add some cooked noodles, sliced cooked chicken, or cooked seafood to their bowls.
- You could use any kind of curry powder, or add a pinch of cayenne for an extra ‘kick’.
- When heating your soup, it should be warm but not so hot that you can’t keep a finger in it comfortably (that’s the “hot but still raw” test).
- Any leftover soup will keep for 3 days in the refrigerator.
