Curried Carrot & Apple Soup

This colorful soup is both simple and delicious. Use apples that cook up soft; McIntosh are great.

Serves 8

Prep Time 40 min

Total Time 60 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped (2 cups)
  • 1 stalk celery, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 5 large carrots, peeled and thinly sliced (3 cups)
  • 2 large McIntosh or other apples, peeled and coarsel, peeled and coarsely chopped (3 cups)
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 4 1/2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoon low-fat plain yogurt, for garnish (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley, dill or basil for garnish (optional)

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Heat oil in a large saucepan or medium soup pot over medium heat. Stir in onion and celery; cook until the onion is softened and translucent, 8 to 12 minutes; do not brown.

Step 2

Stir in curry powder, then add carrots, apples and bay leaf. Stir well over medium heat for 2 minutes, then add broth and salt. Bring the mixture to a low boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cover tightly and simmer until the carrots and apples are tender, 20 to 25 minutes.

Step 3

Remove the bay leaf. Using a large slotted spoon, transfer the soup solids to a food processor, adding about 1/2 cup of the broth; process to a smooth puree. Pour the puree back into the soup. Reheat and season with pepper. Serve piping hot, garnishing each serving, if you like, with a dab of yogurt and a sprinkle of fresh herbs.
