Soup season is in full swing over here! My Instagram account is full of comfort food and since winter weather is still in full swing, I’m going to keep the comforting recipes coming. 

I am a huge soup fan. I love how easy they are to come together, how filling, nutritious and cost effective they can be. Often I cook from the hip, chopping and tossing in as I go, not remembering to WRITE IT DOWN to share with you all. Well, I did remember this time so let’s get making some soup, shall we?

Servings 2


  • large pot
  • blender



  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • pinch chilli flakes
  • 1 small yellow onion (small diced)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 2 tsp ginger root (minced)
  • 1 celery stalk (diced)
  • 1 large parsnip (diced)
  • 1 large carrot (diced)
  • ½ sweet potato (diced)
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • sea salt cracked pepper to taste


  • ½ cup cashews (soaked for 2 hours)
  • 1 small garlic clove (minced)
  • ½ lemon juiced
  • ¼ cup water
  • pinch sea salt and cracked pepper



  • Heat olive oil in a large Dutch oven or stock pot. Add chilli flakes and diced onion. Sauté until onions start to soften. Add garlic and ginger, saute for 1 more minute. Add in carrot, celery, parsnip and sweet potato and season with salt and pepper. Coat veggies with onion mixture and cook for several minutes. Add in a splash of water to get things moving.
  • Once veggies start to soften add in vegetable stock and water. Season again. Bring to a boil, reduce to medium-low heat and simmer until vegetables are fork tender. Approximately 20 minutes. Add in coconut milk and stir to combine. Cook for 5 more minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Ladle half the soup mixture into a blender. Place a kitchen towel over the lid of the blender for extra insurance and pulse together until a smooth puree forms. Transfer to a small pot and continue until all the soup is pureed. Season once again with salt and cracked pepper.
  • Ladle into bowls. Serve with a drizzle of cashew cream and good olive oil and chilli flakes.


  • Place ingredients in a high speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy.
