Carrot, Tomato & Coconut Soup

And just like that, we are a family of four. Little Isac is one week old tonight. Luise gave birth to him in our home. He was delivered under water and into the arms of the bravest, strongest and most beautiful mother I know. Isac is a cute and calm little fellow that spends his days grunting around on our chests, eating and then dozing away in sleep. We are spoiling him with hugs and kisses and eventually we will also spoil him with home cooked food that makes him a healthy and strong plant eater. Thank you so much for all your cheering comments on Instagram, we are so happy to feel your support and love. Now take a look at this lovely little bug.


We could go on and on about him forever, but we actually also have a new recipe for you. It is almost tradition for us to create a new yellow/orange soup every year. We have done lentil soups, sweet potato soups, pumpkin soups and orange soup. Today we are sharing this warm, smooth and creamy carrot soup spiked with tomatoes, coconut milk and turmeric and topped with a corn ceviche loosely inspired by one of Sprouted Kitchen’s recipes. The corn adds a really nice texture to the soup and a fresh twist in flavour. If you are looking for a recipe to start off autumn with, this soup is quite perfect.

This is also a great recipe if you are on a budget. Carrots are always cheap to buy, but now, when they are in season they are extra frikkin’ delicious. Make a huge batch of this soup and fill the freezer with it. I am sure we have mentioned this before, but it’s worth mentioning again: Using seasonal ingredients is a great way to eat good organic vegetables without paying a fortune. Plan what you cook after which seasonal ingredients that are cheapest.


Carrot, Tomato & Coconut Soup
Serves 4-6

1 tbsp cold-pressed coconut oil or olive oil
1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tsp ground turmeric (optional)
10 medium size carrots, rinsed and sliced
1 can (400 g / 14 oz) plum tomatoes or approx. 5 chopped fresh tomatoes
water, enough to cover
sea salt & black pepper
1 can (400 g / 14 oz) full fat coconut milk or any plant milk of choice

Heat oil in a pot. Add onions, garlic and turmeric and sauté until soft and fragrant. Add carrots and tomatoes and cook for a minute or so, while stirring. Now add water, sea salt and pepper, cover and let simmer for 15-20 minutes until the carrots are tender. Meanwhile prepare the corn topping. When the soup is ready, use an immersion (hand) blender to puree until smooth. Stir in the coconut milk, taste and adjust the flavors. Serve the soup in bowls with a couple of spoonfuls topping and a drizzle of olive oil.

Raw Corn Ceviche
2 fresh corn cobs, husks removed
4 sprigs flat-leaf parsley
juice from 1-2 limes
1 tbsp cold-pressed olive oil
sea salt & black pepper

Cut off the corn kernels from all sides. Chop the parsley. Place in a bowl. Combine all ingredients and season to taste.


Okay, just one last photo of him. Because those lips are made for kissing!

He sure has lots of amazing foods to look forward to (and getting the best food ever from Luise for now!) This soup looks delicious, and I love adding corn to soups for some texture. Seasonal produce really does rock ; )

    Congratulations! He is so lovely. Maybe I’ll look at the soup recipe later, but for now I’ll just smile at him. It’s so amazing that they start so small and get so big so fast. My youngest is 2.5 years old already and Dahlia is going to first grade and will turn seven (!) in October. Seven! Hugs for all of you! Welcoming a baby at home is a sweet, sweet thing! ~Jennifer, in Santa Cruz

    Welcome to this beautiful world handsome baby Isac!!! You have the best loving parents and big sister to guide you through this fantastic life journey. Congratulations to you all and enjoy the precious moments together as a family of four now!

    Amazing food photography as always, we often make this soup at home since my kids love it, though I’ll have to try adding your corn ceviche next time for extra yumminess. In the winter, I even add freshly minced ginger to add a kick and keep everyone warm.

    Hugs & kisses to you all from Pennsylvania, USA.

    Congratulations with your little wonder! I want you to know that your blog and cookbook has been a lifesaver for me. In the beginning of this year i heard i had breastcancer, 35 years old and mother of a two year old boy. Idecided to fight as a lion and next to all the chemotherapy and surgery i decided to eat only healthy food, no sugar, no dairy etc. It was pretty hard to find healthy and fun and yummy recipes that were easy to make when i felt miserable…but then i found you!! Thank you for your enthousiastic way of making healthy food fun and sharing it. A half year has gone by and I just heard that i am cured!!! Completely clean! I am sure that all the things i have done helped, healthy food is so important, keep up the goodwork!

    • Posted 22 Aug ’14 at 10:11 | #

      Wow Corinne! Huge congratulations for beating the cancer! What an inspiring story. It sounds like you have had six very rough months and that it was a wise decision to change your eating habits. We are so glad to hear that our food has been helping you in your fight. Hug your boys tightly!
      Much love from us!

I was browsing my pantry today and saw porridge oats and it made me look forward to the change of season, your lovely, nourishing soup recipe even more so!

    I made this soup tonight, with one addition- fresh cilantro (coriander) in the corn ceviche instead of parsley and dash of hot sauce in the soup. It was DELICIOUS.

    Thank you once again for a great recipe.

    Mmmmmm your soups look so good!
    My girlfriend and I have been struggling to find tasty soup recipes, but after reading this post, I think we have solved our problems. Plus we are big fans of carrot, tomatoes (well only me) and coconut. However we might add curry to it to add some more spice (not saying you don’t have enough, we just love curry.)

    Anyways thanks for the post and look forward to making this soup. =D

    Congratulations from yet another silent reader! I just made the soup and used my newest kitchen toy, the pressure cooker. 2 minutes at high pressure instead of the 15-20 minutes simmering and it came out absolutly perfect! The colours really brighten up gray autumn day!

    I made this for lunch and it was delicious. I added some chili and curry powder for extra spice. This is such a simple but hearty soup, and it will definitely go into my rotation!

    I made this the other night and it was delicious! The corn combination is essential and really makes this soup. So good!!

    This soup sounds truly delicious, I’ll be trying it out very soon. I came across your blog a few months ago when looking for recipes to help encourage my family to eat more healthily, and you never disappoint. Well done for keeping it all up with two little ‘uns to look after too ;-)

    And, of course, congratulations on the birth of your beautiful boy!

    Congratulations! He’s so cute!
    And thanks for the recipe, it looks delicious.

    Oh my goodness, the soup sounds amazing but I can’t stop looking at your new little bundle of joy. He’s precious.

    I made this soupe just two days ago and I loved it! Though, I made it just for one person…

    Warmest congratulations! Your little boy is gorgeous, and he’s exactly 3 weeks younger than our little Freja (yes, after the goddess), who grunts a lot as well (it’s getting better every day). How is Elsa adapting? My two year old Lila is over the moon and completely in love with her little sister;) I love Elsa’s skirt! Soup looks nice too:)

    Second, I read the recipe, went grocery shopping, made it (so easy), loved it! That was a nice way to start fall. Thanks.

    LOVE the idea of serving soup in jars! So cute and great for outdoor picnics :)

  116. Posted 27 Sep ’14 at 18:00 | #

    Congratulations he’s the cutest little peanut! I love this soup!

  117. Posted 29 Sep ’14 at 06:44 | #

    I’m way behind on your news, I guess that’s what I get for not being on Instagram. Sounds like a lovely, peaceful homebirth for little Isak, welcome to the new little one! As far as the (much secondary) matter of the soup, it looks both pretty and nourishing (and appealing to young kids). And you are right, carrots are cheap. My husband and I used to practically live on them for our produce when we were young, broke newlyweds.

    När ni fryser in soppa vad gör ni det i då?

  119. Posted 20 Oct ’14 at 20:18 | #

    Hey guys!! Your little Isac is so adorable! Those lips are indeed made for kissing! So cute! And these photos – they make me want to reach into my screen and drink carrot soup. Congrats on this new and beautiful chapter. :)

  120. Posted 2 Nov ’14 at 14:18 | #

    Today I finally made this soup, and I have to say that I am SPEECHLESS! It is the best soup I have ever eaten! Great recipe here :)

      I slightly modified to recipe according to my taste and what was available for me at the moment. I posted it in my blog, if you do not mind. Certainly I stated that the original recipe was found in this blog, and I encouradged my readers to visit your blog/recipe. I hope this is not a problem. Otherwise, please let me know ;)

    I found the link to your soup at Kris Carr’s blog. Yummy!

    I also baked the blueberry-kuru a-muffins! Great!

    Only thing I need to complain: carrots in a plastic bag!

    We all need to stop using this bags. Eating healthy shouldn’t be the only thing to take care of. Also our planet needs a lot of help cause it’s so polluted.

    We made this today, and it was very delicious! Is it okay if I use one of your pictures of the soup on my blog and link to you?

    Have a nice weekend,

    I did this soup today and i have to say that this is the best soup that I ever tasted. I only made a change: I put some curry because I did have not turmeric. Great recipe! thanks for share!

    Quick question… where on earth did you get that horse skirt?! It’s too cute!

    What a soup! We all love it. We use to add the garlic at the end, so the flavor is more intensive. Thanks for this recipe.

    I made this for the first time today and while the taste was nice, the texture came out really watery (I used a hand immersion blender and everything got puréed). Is there anything I can do to thicken it up?
