This recipe was thrown together rather quickly with veggies I had received in my first box from Misfits Market. Yum! The beautiful squashes and carrots were so flavorful.
I threw them in the instant pot, gave them a blend, and bam. A whole batch of warming, spiced soup that will nourish me during this frigid week!
Ginger Curried Winter Vegetable Soup
This vegan and gluten-free recipe was made in the Instant Pot so took less than an hour from start to finish.
If you don't have an Instant Pot, get one. I'm just kidding. (Well, sort of.)
This soup will take more time on the stove top but will be just as delicious.
The ginger makes this soup have a nice mellow kick at the end. Leave out if you don't like ginger. The curry is very mellow, so feel free to add more.
This soup is hearty, warming, and perfect for a cold afternoon or for dinner. Serve with a hearty salad of endive, arugula, pears, walnuts, and prosciutto for a yummy meal.
