Spicy Roasted Carrot and Apple Soup

I really love this soup, for a couple of reasons. The roasting of apples and carrots highlights their flavours, and it is a great soup for Autumn and Winter. Furthermore, my Father loved it. There can be no better recommendation that that ๐Ÿฒ๐Ÿ˜Š . During his last years I would often make it and take it over for him in Winter. Now I make it on his birthday in memory of him. I have lots of good reminiscences on that day.

It’s an interesting soup – you might call it reminiscent of “English Curry” – that old fashioned notion of a curry that was somewhat sweet with its flavour with the gentle heat of spices. So the curry powder in this recipe with the sweetness of the apple and carrots is beautiful and a bit old fashioned. Blended soups per se are a bit out of fashion too, so this one is quite out of date. But still – divine.

Just a note on the curry powder. Well, it is a bit like saying “3 cups flour” – what flour? Plain, self raising, whole meal, bread flour, coconut flour, …? Curry powder can be mild, gentle or hot. It can contain many spices or just a few. In this dish, the recipe is flexible enough to use whatever curry powder you have at hand. Add it little by little until a mild heat is achieved.ย  You can also use sambar powder, rasam powder or Middle Eastern and North African spice mixes.
