Friday Favorites: a recipe

You guys.


Stop and read this. This is the most fan-freaking-tastic soup I have had, possibly in my life. That's almost 30 years, (less than a month! gulp!) so you know, a ton of soup-tasting time.

Curried Carrot, Apple, and Peanut Soup

Say what? Ok, I am not a huge fan of carrots. I eat them with lots of ranch, or mixed in a casserole or something. I would definitely not seek out a carrot recipe. But I saw this on Pinterest, and the other flavors definitely had me intrigued. Curry? Apple? Peanuts? Heck yea. The blend of spices are so perfect for Fall, and the house smelled amazing when we were cooking this.

I'm showing pictures from The Law Student's Wife's post, because I did not even think about taking pictures. I was in too much of a hurry to get this in my belly!

We've been trying to incorporate more vegetarian meals into our diet, both for health and finance reasons. Right now, apples are super cheap. We always have peanut butter in our house. Carrots are always cheap. Check, check and check.

Also, you could probably make this totally vegan if you left out the greek yogurt, which is really just a topping. I didn't have any on mine. I paired my bowl with some extra apple slices, some peanuts mixed in, and a nice slice of crusty bread. Yum!

For the mamas out there: my daughter gobbled this up. It helped that we had lots to "dip" in it, like the bread and apple slices. But she really liked this.

We had it Wednesday night, and then I had it for lunch yesterday. I also have a bowl in my lunch bag for today as well.

So, go be adventurous and make this soup. It's easy, and makes plenty. You will love it!
