How are you all? New years greetings from our family to yours, and I hope you are having an awesome start of 2019.  I am sure you all had a gala time with friends and family and did not watch out or count any calories in your food, well I did not either. Because Christmas is the time for joy, cheer and make memories and not to count calories. Once all that fun finishes and the new year starts, I kinda feel guilty for my body and I'm all frazzled out, all that rich and sugar loaded food leaves me on my knees. So, always I keep a few healthy and nutritious recipes and ingredients handy to detox our bodies after the festive season like Diwali and Christmas. Oh yes, for us party starts in October and finishes in the new year :) We started our new year day with this amazingly delicious Thai Carrot and Cashew Soup! Four of us were bowled over by this soup, we gobbled it up without any need for bread, and demanded seconds.

This super creamy and nutritious soup is packed with flavours and a powerhouse of nutrients. This Thai style soup is prepared with fresh carrots which are packed with vitamin A. The soup gets a kick from the ginger, onion-garlic that are a wealth of anti-inflammatory.

I DON'T HAVE AN INSTANT POT


But, you still can prepare this luscious soup in an ordinary pan or stovetop pressure cooker. Just follow the exact method. Carrots may take slightly longer to cook in a pan.

LET'S TALK INGREDIENTS


Vegetables - We will need carrots for this recipe, although we are using fresh carrots in this recipe frozen or tinned ones won't harm if you use it. Onion, garlic, fresh ginger just adds that extra flavours and nutritious benefits to the soup. A handful of freshly chopped coriander would be so lovely for garnishing the soup.

Spices/Paste - The highlight of this soup is Thai red curry paste, you'll only need a couple of spoons and that will turn this soup into

Nuts - Raw cashew nuts, an alternative to dairy ingredients in this recipe.

Coconut milk - You'll need thin coconut milk which helps to enhance the Thai flavours.

Liquid - Vegetable stock is the perfect ingredient for this recipe, it does not matter if you use fresh homemade veg stock or prepare it with the vegetable stock cubes.
