Vegan Lime Coconut Carrot Soup

March 24, 2023
This light, zesty Lime Coconut Carrot Soup is perfect for spring evenings when you're craving soothing comforting food but you don't want anything too rich. Serve it alongside a green salad and brown rice (or a grain of your choice) and you've got a perfectly balanced, fiber-rich meal.
I love making soup any time of year. The process of making soup has always felt like one of the more introspection-inducing kitchen activities. Soup is quiet, and the rhythmic stirring of the vegetable and broth never fails to soothe. And let's not forget the way soup has a tendency to fill your kitchen (and beyond) with a warming, grounding fragrance. So here's to soup! May it nourish your soul.
