Carrot Ginger Bisque with Cashew Cream

By • February 4, 2013 • 1 Comments



Author Notes: This spicy, sweet, and simple soup is brought to life by a thick ribbon of cashew cream. Gena Hamshaw

Serves 4-6

  • 1 tablespoon Olive oil
  • 3/4 cups onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup celery, diced
  • 2 inch piece of ginger, peeled and chopped
  • 4 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 medium small russet potato, quartered
  • 1 1/4 pound carrots, chopped
  • sea salt to taste
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon mild curry powder
  • 2/3 cups cashew cream, divided
  1. Saute the onions, celery, and ginger in oil in a medium sized pot until the onions are translucent (about ten minutes).
  2. Add the stock, carrots, potato, curry powder, and salt to the pot.
  3. Bring the liquid to a boil, and then lower it to a simmer. Let the mix simmer for about twenty-five minutes, or until all of the carrots are nice and tender.
  4. When the carrots are tender, turn off the flame. Using an immersion blender, puree the soup completely. You may also use a blender for this step, but work in small batches and be mindful of spattering liquid.
  5. Transfer the blended soup back to your pot, and warm through. Stir in 1/3 cup of the cashew cream.
  6. To serve the soup, divide it into bowls and top with a swirl of additional cashew cream.

This sounds delicious. I am getting ready to try out Antonia James 18/21 meals per week plant based diet for Lent and the cashew cream sounds like a good way to add richness without cream made from milk.
