Recipe: Curried Carrot and Apple Soup

This unique, savory soup can be enjoyed at Enchanted Garden on the Disney Dream cruise ship.

The sweetness from the Granny Smith apples and carrots are nicely balanced with the spiciness of the curry. A perfect soup to be served before a meal or even as a meal in the cool, crisp autumn days.

Curried Carrot and Apple Soup
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon curry powder
1 cup diced carrots (about 4 medium carrots) plus 1 whole carrot, divided
1 medium onion, chopped
2 Granny Smith apples, peeled and chopped
4 cups vegetable broth
Coarse salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Plain yogurt, fresh parsley, for garnish
  1. Heat the oil in a large, heavy bottomed pot over medium heat. Add curry powder and cook, stirring, for 2 to 3 minutes. Add diced carrots, onions and apple, and stir until coated with the curry powder. Sauté for 5 minutes. Add broth, stirring to combine.
  2. Cover the pot. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until carrots and apples are very soft, about 20 to 25 minutes. Puree in a blender, or with a hand-held blender. Taste, and add salt and pepper, if desired.
  3. While soup is cooking, preheat oven to 400°F. Peel remaining whole carrot and cut into very thin curls. Roast for 3 to 5 minutes, or until ends are browned and crisp.
  4. Top each bowl of soup with yogurt, roasted carrot curls and fresh parsley. Serve warm.
