Carrot and tomato soup is best served out of a mug on a cold winter day or night. It takes me back to my childhood of coming home after a long walk and enjoy a cup of freshly made soup off the AGA whilst my dogs snuggled up with me on the sofa. I've swapped cream for a healthier coconut which gives the soup a whole new layer of deliciousness.
Heat the olive oil in a pot, add the onions, garlic and turmeric and sauté until soft and fragrant. Add the carrots and tomatoes and cook for a minute or so, while stirring.
Add enough water to cover all the ingredients, a sprinkle of salt and a few twists of black pepper, and let the whole thing simmer for 15-20 minutes until the carrots are tender.
When the soup is ready, use an immersion (hand) blender to puree until smooth. Stir in the coconut milk, taste and adjust the flavours.
Serve the soup in bowls with some black pepper and a drizzle of olive oil.
