  • Large pot


  • 1 onion
  • 3 medium carrots
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 can navy beans
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1.5 tsp garam masala
  • 1 demi baguette
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper


  • Wash and dry all produce. Remove ends and peel from onion; then medium dice. Mince or grate garlic. Remove ends and peel from carrots; then, medium dice. Open navy bean can and rinse gently.
  • Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and sauté for 3-4 min until soft and translucent. Add garlic, carrots, turmeric and garam masala. Cook for 1-2 minutes. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Add navy beans, coconut milk and 2.5 cups of water (or broth if you have it). Simmer for 15-20 min until the carrots are soft and soup begins to thicken.
  • While the soup is cooking warm up the bread in the oven or toaster oven.
  • Puree using a blender or mash with a potato masher—it will be a chunkier but still delicious! Season to taste and simmer another 5 min until thick and incorporated.
  • Serve warm with baguette! Enjoy!
