Cumin Carrot Soup

Recipe By In memory of Dave Michalski, Savory Spice customer and good friend

Recipe By In memory of Dave Michalski, Savory Spice customer and good friend

This deliciously thick and spicy carrot soup makes a great starter course for a dinner party. Or turn it into a hearty winter meal by adding a scoop of cooked rice to each serving.

Serving Suggestions

Serve with dollop of plain yogurt, scoop of rice or piece of naan or pita bread to help balance the soup’s heat.

Recipe Notes

This soup has a spicy kick. You can cut back on the cumin, Zanzibar or white pepper by up to half (to taste) for an equally flavorful but little less zippy soup.

Ingredients

4 cups chopped carrots

2 tsp. olive oil

1 cups chopped onion


2 Tbsp. honey

1 Tbsp. soy sauce


4 tsp. Zanzibar Curry Powder




¼ to ½ cup heavy cream
