A good, easy soup with some great warmth (not spiciness) thanks to the curry and ginger. Blend the soup well to get the best result. I suggest adding a bit of salt to the finished dish. You could also add some cooked chicken or tofu to the soup for more protein and/or to satisfy meat-eaters. Very easy to customize!

This soup is very simple to make and tasty. I thought from the picture it would be a thin soup, instead it is thick. Next time I wil cut back on the carrots and add more fat-free half-and-half to thin it out. This is a keeper and makes the house smell so good!
