Fresh carrot and ginger are enhanced by Indian spices in this simple yet sublime vegetarian soup recipe. It's light on calories (also, fat-free), but bursting with flavor.


  • 2 ½ cups onions, roughly chopped (about 4 to 5 medium onions)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
  • 3 ½ teaspoons coriander, ground
  • 3 ½ teaspoons curry powder
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 9 cups carrots, chopped (about 18 to 24 medium carrots)
  • 11 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 4 ½ teaspoons lime juice, fresh


  1. Sauté the onions with ginger, spices and carrots until the vegetables begin to soften.
  2. Add the broth and lime juice; simmer 30 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.
  3. Working in batches, purée in blender until smooth.
  4. Add more broth if too thick.
