Because winter isn’t over yet, because we need color, because we want vitamins, because we want tasty food. And because it’s different!!
Here is the famous 4 “C” soup, by Casserole&Chocolat ! Carrot, Coconut milk, Curry and Coriander!
So as far as colors are concerned, we are all set!! This shiny orange will bring energy on your table. A few leaves of fresh coriander, and you’ll have green too!! Don’t you worry… you are on a food blog and not a “painting for dummies” one!! 😉
Regarding vitamins, carrots are a pretty good choice, don’t you agree ? And it remains a super healthy recipe for a light dinner. Or a starter with, as shown here, Parmesan cheese tiles. This 4 “C” soup will also be a great element for your aperitif table, in little jars. Shall I go on?? 🙂
And finally, taste will be great!! Do not hesitate to spread with sunflower seeds onyour soup bowl. It’s a great combo. And as always, I buy my spices from Albert Ménès, for a perfect balance of tastes!
Aww … I forgot… It’s super easy to cook!!! Happiness in a bowl…
Shall we? The recipe, Chef!
