Its super hot now!
Its summer here and we gotta enjoy it till the heat lasts, isn’t it? Carrot and Coconut Soup is the perfect light soup for weeknight dinners for almost all seasons. The summer heat makes it tough to have extra energy and time spent in the kitchen and that’s when a quickie like this soup comes to rescue.
Carrot and Coconut Soup is made using literally 5 ingredients and can be paired with something warm if interested during winters or can be stored in the fridge and enjoyed cold during summers. A drizzle of olive oil on the soup give its an amazing flavor. This same recipe can be repeated with just tomatoes or beetroot instead of carrots. But I am yet to try it with other veggies as I am total head over heels with this veggie soup which is the perfect #vegan & #glutenfree meal option.
This soup can be meal prepped and stored in the freezer for upto 2 months in advance, isn’t that super cool?
