In light of today's tragedy in Boston I did the things that are special and meaningful in my life. I gathered my family, went for a hike with gratefulness in my heart and came home and made a hardy soup that we all shared. Our hearts go to those who may not have that pleasure, that gift, today - our prayers & thoughts are with you.
Today, I just made my soup with love and forgot to take measurements - however, I have listed the ingredients below in the best approximation I can. Take care, be thankful and put forth and express love, peace & compassion wherever you go. Live your life as though you have been given a second chance to live it again.
I do not add cream or coconut milk to this because I like the direct flavor of the carrots and don't wish to dull it down. However, some people like the creamy, curry flavor and feel - so add this if you so wish. Sometimes, I do, too!
use your intuitive senses - is it good? does it need something? is it dull on the tongue (add a squeeze of lime juice or dash of salt) - test it with cilantro topping, put your soul into it - add a dash of pepper or cream if you wish... taste again ... that's cooking.
Lastly, BE THANKFUL, hug your family and send peace, love and compassion out into the world, into your home, and into your community.
