This is a spicy-sweet warming soup for a cold day. And since soup helps you feel full and eat less, this recipe is a great start to any meal.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook broth in a large, heavy saucepan, reducing it by half to concentrate flavors.

Step 2

Heat oil in a medium sauté pan. Add onion and garlic; sauté 3 to 5 minutes, or until onion is translucent.

Step 3

Add ginger, potato, and carrot; cover and cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add coconut milk and bell pepper; cover and cook 5 more minutes. Add reduced broth to vegetable mixture; season with pepper. Cover and cook until all vegetables are tender.

Step 4

In blender or food processor, puree soup in small batches until smooth. Adjust seasonings.

Step 5

Serve in warm soup bowls. Garnish with apple or pear cubes, if desired.

Step 6

Variation: Garnish with a combination of scallions and chopped fresh parsley or cilantro.
