thai carrot and sweet pepper coconut soup with cilantro pesto {paleo + dairy free + vegan}

My favorite part about winter? All the SOUPS!

And I am so excited about this soup recipe! Thai carrot and sweet pepper coconut soup with cilantro pesto that’s paleo, and can easily be made dairy free + vegan.

The flavors sing like a ray of sunshine in the cold days of February and really are kind of life-changing. As I write this we’re getting our first REAL snow of the winter here in Seattle, and I couldn’t think of something would rather cozy up to more than this vibrant bowl of soup!

Thai carrot and sweet pepper coconut soup with cilantro pesto - The perfect, vibrant, veggie packed soup for your midwinter cravings! It's loaded with carrots, sweet peppers, onion, garlic, lemongrass, lime leaves and spices, blended with some creamy coconut milk and topped with a fresh and flavorful cilantro pesto.

 

I would actually, (probably) eat some type of soup for every meal if I could get away with it. I’ve definitely been known to have soup for breakfast when I wasn’t cooking for anyone else!

Unfortunately, Patrick isn’t always up for soup for breakfast // lunch // dinner, so I can’t exactly live out my dream soup for every meal, but I’ll just go ahead and sneak it in as much as I can!

And with recipes like this, I don’t get too many complaints.

these guys are good. so good that i think i’ve made them at least 3 time in the last week to go with whatever else it is we’re eating besides carrots…

not only do they look so gosh darn pretty and vibrant, but they’re also all sweet & salty & just a tiny bit sour from the fresh lemon that you squeeze on at the end. in other words, so freaking delicious! Continue reading
