Slow Cooker Curried Carrot Soup Recipe Notes
Gorgeously golden, subtly sweet, with just a hint of spice from the curry powder, both Rod and I agreed that this soup was delicious when I served it last night as part of a simple supper.
If you prefer a deeper curry flavor, add an extra teaspoon or two.
While this recipe calls for carrots and apples, I’ve also made it with carrots, butternut squash and apples and just butternut squash and apples.
Most recently I added a large peeled chopped sweet potato to the carrots and apples, which resulted in a thicker, more bisque like consistency and deeper orange color.
I’ve also had success substituting a cup or two of unsweetened applesauce for the chopped apples.
Clearly this is a soup you can vary to suit your tastes, the season, and what you have available.

Slow Cooker Curried Carrot Soup Recipe
- 8 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 apples, peeled and chopped (I like Granny Smith or Honey Crisp)
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- 1 teaspoon curry powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon allspice
- 3 cups chicken or vegetable broth
- 1 cup milk, dairy or nondairy
- Chopped fresh cilantro, for garnish
- Ideal slow cooker size: 4-Quart.
- In your slow cooker, combine the carrots, onion, apple, curry powder, garlic, allspice, salt and broth.
- Cover and cook on LOW 8 to 10 hours or until carrots are very tender, and easily split with a fork.
- With an immersion blender, carefully puree the soup until it's silky smooth, being careful not to splatter yourself with the hot soup. (You can also do this in a blender, in batches, again being careful and holding down the lid to avoid being burned by exploding soup)
- Stir in the milk. (I used coconut milk beverage since it's what was in the fridge.)
- Ladle into bowls and sprinkle with cilantro.
- different vegetables: sweet potatoes, parsnips, winter squash (acorn, butternut, hubbard, etc)
