As far as simple, deeply flavored recipes go, this one is a model citizen. A base of onions softened in butter start off the proceedings, then the carrots and spices and either vegetable or chicken stock. Simmered and pureed then thinned just-so with warm milk and topped with thick yogurt, it is the kind of soup you have in a restaurant and wonder about the recipe. It's also surprisingly filling as a main course. The secret: find some excellent, fresh curry powder to ensure the best flavor. http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2011/03/dinner-tonight-senegalese-curried-carrot-soup-recipe.html

Recipe Ingredients for Senegalese Curried Carrot Soup (seriouseats.com)

6 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 small onion, finely chopped
3 cups roughly chopped carrots
3 cups chicken or vegetable stock
2 teaspoon good-quality, fresh curry powder
1 1/2 cups rice milk (or cream, for a very rich taste)
1 Salt and pepper to taste

Recipe Directions for Senegalese Curried Carrot Soup (seriouseats.com)

  1. In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat until foam subsides. Add onions and saute until transparent, 5-8 minutes. Don't let them brown.

  2. Add carrots and stir well to coat with butter, and cook until almost soft, 10-12 minutes more. Sprinkle curry powder over vegetables and cook, stirring constantly, until spices are very fragrant, about 1 minute.

  3. Add stock and bring to a boil, then simmer until carrots are completely soft. Transfer to a blender or food processor and blend, in batches if necessary, until completely pureed.

  4. Return to saucepan and whisk in milk. Return to a simmer and season with salt and pepper to taste. Divide amongst bowls and top with yogurt. Soup can be served hot or cold
