I woke up to a magical, bright, and warm sunshine yesterday morning. Still, it was cold and there’s a lot of snow outside. But that illusion of warmth made me feel that spring is really arriving.

Bright summer-like sunshine is a rare phenomenon in Scandinavia. This is especially true in winter months. So the first thing Adoria asked after waking up yesterday was: “Mommy, why it is morning already today. Are we late?”

Me: “No, we are on time.”

Adoria: “But why it is so bright already? Is it summer time?”

We go out to work when it’s dark in the mornings, and we come back home, again in dark. And during these days when we wake up early in the mornings, it’s dark, and by the time we get ready it is morning already.

Oh, and at such special blissful times, all I want is to drink a glass of sunlight every morning to illuminate my inner self. Happy mood leads to happy creations. And my happy mood landed me to this mildly spiced and flavor bursting ‘Creamy Sweet Potato Carrot Soup’.

Is it too late for a soup in your dictionary? Well for me, it’s never too early or too late when it comes to a comfy bowl of soup. As you know we are still having some cold weather here with sub-zero temperatures, and this golden yellow soup sounded like just the best fit for yesterday’s dinner.

What you get is a sweet, spicy, creamy and rich soup when you combine carrots and sweet potato. And it is more of a gift when some spices are blended with a rich and flavorful ingredient — coconut milk.

The natural sweetness of the sweet potatoes + carrots and coconut milk gives this soup a surprising intense sweet flavor twist. And spices help in balancing that sweet flavor. I also added some cashews and almonds for that nice crunchy touch.

Creamy Sweet Potato Carrot Soup | mygingergarlickitchen.com/ @anupama_dreamsThis thick, creamy, and bright soup makes an easy, quick and comforting bowlful for everyday meal — all on its own. For a complete meal, I would suggest you to add a slice of bread with some salad or have it with some rice or noodles. And yes, don’t forget a splash of lime/lemon juice at the end for that extra flavor punch.

So try this very nutritious, spiced carrot and sweet potato soup. Dark or no dark, winter or no winter, this soup delight will surely warm you up.
