Garam Masala Carrot Soup

  • 1 and 1/2 lbs medium carrots, trimmed, peeled, sliced lengthwise, and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 medium yellow onions, chopped into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons ground garam masala 
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • small pinch of ground cayenne pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 can (13 or 14 ounces) coconut milk
  • juice of half a lime
  • freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 C) with a rack in the center position. Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil. Place the carrots and onions on the sheet pan, drizzle with oil, Garam Masala, cayenne pepper, and salt. Toss the vegetables with your hands to evenly coat the vegetables. Spread into an even, thin layer.
  2. Roast the carrots and onions until lightly caramelized and very fork tender, tossing them halfway through, about 25 to 35 minutes.
  3. Place the coconut milk and 1 and 1/4 cups boiling hot water in a high capacity blender. If using a smaller blender, you may need to do this step in batches. Using the foil, transfer the roasted carrots and onions to the blender. Add the lime juice. Puree until desired consistency. Season the soup to taste with salt, pepper, and additional lime juice,if desired.
