    1. 1
      Heat the oil in a large saucepan or stockpot.
    2. 2
      Add the sliced carrots (not the matchstick carrots) and ginger and sautee over medium-high heat, until the carrots are crisp-tender and lightly browned, about 6 to 7 minutes.
    3. 3
      Add the onion and cook until softened but not browned, about 2 minutes.
    4. 4
      Add the stock, water, coconut milk and curry paste to the saucepan and bring to a boil.
    5. 5
      Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer over until the carrots are tender, about 25 minutes.
    6. 6
      Strain out the solids, reserving the liquid; discard the ginger.
    7. 7
      Transfer the carrots to a blender and puree with 1 cup of the cooking liquid until very smooth.
    8. 8
      Return the puree to the cooking liquid.
    9. 9
      This can also be done with a stick blender if you have one and will be much easier- just remove the ginger and puree in the pot.
    10. 10
      Add the carrot matchsticks and cook until tender, about 3 minutes.
    11. 11
      Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
    12. 12
      Serve hot, garnished with the scallion, cilantro and basil.
    13. 13
      For Vegetarian use Vegetable stock.

      I forgot to use the basil but did remember the cilantro. This was super tasty. I had one guest who didnt like it because the ginger was overwhelming. I am now thinking that by slices you meant like two little circles of ginger and i did a whole arm so it makes sense why it was strong in mine. I served it with Chicken Lo Mein and it tasted good. Not sure if those two recipes are the best paring but i enjoyed eating them both around the same time. Thanks!

      Very good! I doubled the recipe and made the following changes: pureed the whole batch; left ginger slices in the soup; heavier handed on the coconut milk and red curry paste; omitted water; used 1/2 chicken broth and 1/2 Trader Joe's soy ginger broth. Thanks! This will be a great take to work lunch this week!
