I know it's rather predictable but in my defence it was the perfect day for making soup today. We were basically snowed in all day thanks to a band of snow squalls moving through the area. So while I hunkered down in the kitchen with some sweet potatoes and carrots my kids hunkered down in the family room with a DVD from the Library on things that explode. Win-win.
This week I tried a Carrot and Sweet Potato soup made with curry powder that I found a perfect antidote to a cold Winter (or is it still technically Fall?) day. I did modify this soup slightly. I couldn't be bothered peeling an apple and was running low on chicken stock so added apple juice instead. I also didn't add the honey since I felt the soup was sweet enough after I had pureed everything. I've decided that for me, a deal-breaker with a soup is its consistency. This one was perfect. I don't love a thick soup.
