Vegan carrot soup
This is a recipe of a spicy carrot soup by Anastasiya Zurabova, journalist and founder of the «Russian Foodie» culinary magazine. Easy to make, this soup is an all-times favorite with all the ingredients found all year round. A touch of ginger and garlic zest, softened by tenderness of coconut milk, make a warming meal for the fall and winter chilly weather. A nice option for lunch with a company of vegetarian friends, although it's not just vegans who are going to love this soup. The bright orange color will definitely lift everyone's spirits.

600 gr carrots
½ can coconut milk
a piece of ginger to taste
2 garlic cloves
1 tsp. Curry

Cook diced carrots in a pot with olive oil for 5 minutes. Add ginger and garlic and cook 2 minutes more. Pour the water or vegetable broth into the pot, add salt, close with a lid and cook for 30 minutes. Add in coconut milk, curry and cook for 10 minutes more until the carrots are soft.
