Carrot Garam Masala Soup

I keep making this Carrot Garam Masala Soup for girls’ night hang outs.

Carrot Garam Masala Soup

Girls’ Night should probably be called Early Evening Chick Chat or something like that because these events always seem to get started in the afternoon.

Maybe it’s the vibrant orange color of this soup that suits a get-together. Maybe we just need something in our bellies since we’re gonna drink some wine and get passionate about life and Project Runway.

Carrot Garam Masala Soup is slightly carrot-sweet and quietly rich without being overwhelming or heavy. Garam Masala is an Indian spice mix which varies by region but typically includes black and white peppercorns, cinnamon, cloves, black and white cumin seeds and black, brown and green cardamom pods. Garam Masala is clear and intense yet balanced. It gives this simple carrot concoction a fragrant and flavorful twist. A final, gentle addition of heavy cream lays in the plush comfort.

Carrot Garam Masala Soup stores well in an airtight container in the fridge which means it can be made ahead of time. That’s what I do. A few minutes over low heat and a gentle stir is all it needs before being served.

Add a chilly glass of white wine and someone cool to talk to about winter boots, art, life and the elusive pursuit of a totally hooked up (and hemmed properly…in my brief case) wardrobe. Enjoy!

  1. Well isn’t that just the perfect bowl of soup in the perfect little bowl? Looks warming and comfortable– like a sweater for your belly. (Loving the nailpolish in the last picture– is that hand yours, perchance?)

      @Sara The Cozy Herbivore Thank you…sweater for your belly…love that! That bowl was a gift (thank you Madame C.) And yes…that is my paw sporting my new nail color. Nice and witchy, huh? I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of punky nails.
