Soups are so nourishing and warming and can be cooked in bulk…perfect for quick lunches and dinners during the week. Coconut carrot bisque is one of my favorite soups. It is rich and creamy from the coconut milk, slightly sweet from the carrots and just enough spice from the curry. It is perfect with a side of fluffy basmati rice and a crunchy salad of cucumber, celery and peppers tossed in white balsamic, olive oil, a piece of smashed garlic and salt and pepper.
