Easy vegetable coconut curry soup

Feel like something different tonight? try this soup. It really lives up to its name. It’s easy, it’s curried, it has coconut milk goodness in it and you can use up almost any vegetable you happen to neglect in the back of your fridge. I always have root vegetables such as carrots, onions, potatoes and parsnips on hand but feel free to switch them up with sweet potatoes, cauliflower, squash or anything else that rings your bell. I do recommend that you keep the onion and the aromatic root (parsnip, celery or parsley root) as they add, well, aroma to the soup. I used half a can of coconut milk and froze the rest, but you can definitely add the whole can for extra coconut richness (but I won’t be accountable for the fat content). The soup keeps well in the fridge for up to a week, and is very yummy served with some coriander that I sadly did not have when this picture was taken. What are you waiting for? Curry up!
