Creamy Thai Carrot Soup

Serving Size: 4

My variation is 1 PointsPlus Value per serving

Ingredients

  • 2 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 pound uncooked baby carrots
  • 1/2 cup uncooked Spanish onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 2 1/4 tsp fresh ginger root
  • 1 1/2 tsp Thai curry paste
  • 7 0z container Fage 2% plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 TBS fresh mint leaves - chopped

Instructions

In a medium saucepan, bring broth, carrots, onion garlic and giner to a boil over medium-high heat. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 - 25 minutes, until carrots are tender. Stir in curry paste and Greek yogurt and simmer for 1 minute to blend flavors. Remove from heat and add mint leaves and cool slightly.

Begin ladling ingredients into a blender - being careful as this is still hot - and puree until smooth. You may need to do this in batches, depending on the size of your blender.

**Serve with a tsp of yogurt and fresh mint on top - if you like

**If you would like a more spicy soup, add a bit more curry paste. Be careful as a little bit goes a long way.
