2cups Pacific Foods Organic Coconut Non-Dairy Beverage, plus more for drizzle
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
Handful fresh cilantro leaves, chopped for garnish
Heat oil in a large soup pot over medium heat. Add the onion and carrots, and cook for 5 minutes until onion is soft and translucent. Stir in the garlic cloves, curry paste, coriander, cumin, and red pepper flakes to skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes.
Add in the vegetable broth and coconut milk and reduce heat to a simmer until carrots are soft, about 20 minutes.
Season to taste, adding a pinch of salt or black pepper, if desired.
Remove the soup from heat and let cool slightly. Add the vegetables in broth plus maple syrup to a blender and puree until creamy and smooth. Depending on the size of your blender, you may need to work in batches. Alternately, you can use an immersion blender right in the pot.
Return soup back to the pot and stir in the lime juice.
Serve with chopped cilantro and extra coconut beverage, for drizzle.
