Coconut Carrot Soup

 

Have you ever tried carrot soup before?

If not, you’re probably like “ew, no. That sounds gross.”

And if you have, you’re probably like, “ew, no. That shit is bland.”

Which it usually is. But I have discovered something this weekend: the bland carrot soup makers of the world are just BAD at making carrot soup. If you throw some spices, some creamy coconut milk, and a little lemon juice, carrot soup is rad.

 

Plus, once you have your delicious, warm carrot soup in your bowl, you can pour some extra coconut milk in there to make some cool latte-esce designs and pretend you own a fancy restaurant that Gorden Ramsey would come to and not yell at you about.

Am I the only one with that dream? I can’t be. Can’t you just imagine having a place where he just sat down, ate your food, and genuinely didn’t have anything bad to say about it? I’d cry.

 

Back to the soup.

It’s good.

Try it out!

Love you.

Bye.
