Carrots, Ginger, Coconut Milk & Stuff Soup

This is one of my favorite soups, I combined in it all the flavors that I like: my beloved coconut milk, lime juice, curry paste, miso and of course, the one and only, cilantro.



Two points that are making this a winning soup:

  1. Instead of carrots you can use pumpkin or sweet potato (yes, these orange veggies are just perfect with coconut milk!)
  2. In case of a cold, just use more ginger and curry paste – a perfect cold medication!

Ingredients – 4 servings – note that I used regular teaspoons, not measurement teaspoons (see photos) 

  • Half an onion
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • A small piece of ginger
  • A few chili slices


  • 8-10 carrots
  • 2 kaffir lime leaves (I buy mine dry in a small jar and the last forever!)
  • A teaspoon of brown sugar
  • Juice from half a lime


  • A teaspoon of white miso
  • Half a teaspoon of red curry paste (or yellow, or green) – or more if you like it hot! 


  • Small box of coconut milk (a can is also good!)
  • Fresh cilantro
  • Udon noodles (a bund per serving)



  • If you don’t have Udon noodles you can use rice noodles or glass noodles or any other noodles
  • Tofu cubes can also be a nice addition
  • If you want to make it a fuller meal – serve with white rice


  • In a big pot – sauté the onion, ginger, chili and garlic in a spoon of coconut oil (yes, or any other oil…)
  • Peel and cut the carrots to small pieces – add to the pot and lightly fry for 2-3 minutes


  • Cover with water (I’d say 2 liters) – cook on medium heat
  • Add the brown sugar, juice from half a lime, kaffir lime leaves, curry paste and miso – stir well
  • Bring to boil, lower heat and cook for 15 minutes
  • Add the coconut milk – stir well and cook on medium heat for 15 more minutes – boiling the coconut milk will break its texture – be careful!
  • Once the carrots are relatively soft – REMOVE the kaffir lime leavs


  • Use your hand mixer (or whatever you use to puree your soups) and puree the soup until smooth
  • Prepare noodles according to instructions (Udon noodles need to be cooked 5 minutes in boiled water)
  • Serve with a portion of the noodles, a slice of lime and lots of cilantro – unless you dislike cilantro – which will make you a weird person! 🙂
