Kale & carrot soup

With Autumn in tune, here at Kerala Ayurveda Centre, we wanted to share this delicious ‘warmer’ of a soup. Simple to make and delicious too!

Here’s what you will need

  • 1 lb carrots, skinned & cubed
  • 5-6 C vegetable broth
  • ½ C onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic chopped
  • ¼ t cumin
  • 1 t salt
  • Dash of black pepper
  • Dash of cayenne pepper
  • 2 C Kale or broccoli, steamed
  • 1 C cooked brown rice
  • 3 T natural peanut butter

Here’s how to make it

Saute the onions and garlic in a little vegetable broth
Add in spices, 2-3 C broth and carrots and cook until tender
In a separate bowl, drain and keep the liquid

Place the carrots in food processor and blend, adding reserved and remaining broth a little at a time. Be careful not to overfill processor. This step can be done in small batches.
Add the peanut butter
Taste and adjust the spices
Pour into bowl and add kale or broccoli and brown rice
If you prefer “soupier” soup, add more vegetable broth and adjust spices
