Creamy Carrot Soup

Carrots are a siman for an increase in our spiritual merits. It’s a play on words; carrots in Yiddish are merren which also means “many.” Wishing that we had more mitzvos on our record this time of year isn’t a shoulda-coulda-woulda guilt trip. It’s a commitment for the future.

    HI Jamie- This looks delish! Wanna try making this for pesach. Is coconut milk kosher for pesach?

    • I am so sorry I don’t believe I have seen coconut milk with a reliable kosher for passover certification BUT you could make your own: AHHHHH :-) but you can make your own, we have a recipe for making your own in this chocolate pudding recipe http://www.joyofkosher.com/recipe/decadent-chocolate-pudding/)Good Luck! Not very Quick & Kosher but cool to have a homemade coconut milk recipe nonetheless.

      • Actually, Jamie, here in Israel I have found Pesachdik coconut milk – I believe I bought it in Cheaperkol last year.I can’t promise it will ever be available again (just the way things work here, especially for Pesach), but it is a possibility!

    Can you use almond milk instead of coconut milk?

    Does this double and freeze well?

    I was invited for a Rosh Hashanah dinner tonight and this soup was served.. I have never tried a more delicious soup in my life! It was so flavorful, I had to look up the recipe and can’t wait to make it at home.

    • Flo! I am SO SO SO happy you took the time to comment here. Please thank your host for making it and directing you to our site and the recipe. You now got me in the mood — I have exactly 2 cans of coconut milk in my cupboard just calling my name! Happy New Year!

  5. I am going to try your recipe but I was wondering on the sodium content and calories. Thanks

    • Hi Leticia, I analyzed the recipe for you and included it above, but just wanted to note that the actual info will vary based on the type of broth you use, the calories are probably pretty close to what I have here, but the sodium can be adjusted if you use a low sodium broth and/or less salt then called for.

    If I don’t necessarily need this to be pareve, what would you suggest using instead of coconut milk – milk, cream, half & half? And would that drastically change the flavor?
    Also, another idea for keeping it pareve: have you heard of mimicreme? Do you think that would work well?
    Thank you.

    • I have worked with mimicreme and find it slightly sweet I like to use it in desserts but don’t suggest it here. If you want to go dairy I would say milk or heavy cream (YUM!) enJOY!
