I know I may be taking the clean eating thing a slight bit too seriously when I start making soup out of CARROTS. Strange…yet so good and good for you! Off of All Recipes, here is the recipe for vegan carrot curry soup:
-2 tablespoons vegetable or olive oil
-4 large chopped carrots
-1 white onion, chopped
-1 can vegetable broth
-1 tablespoon curry powder
-3 minced cloves of garlic
-salt and pepper to taste
On a stove top in a medium pot, simmer oil and onions until transparent. Stir in carrots and garlic and simmer on medium heat to let the carrots sweat out their juices. Add in broth and curry powder and stir and cook for about 5 more minutes. Puree all of mixture in a blender and serve! It is a crazy different idea but trust me it is actually so tasty.
Chicken, Avocado, & Mango Salad:
-2 tablespoons brown sugar
-1/4 cup of water
-4 cups shredded cooked chicken
-1/3 cup lime juice
-1/2 cup chilli garlic sauce
-2 diced avocados
-2 medium diced mangoes
-1 10 ounce spring lettuce package
Stir brown sugar and water together in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring t a boil, then set aside in a medium bowl with the garlic, lime juice, and chilli sauce. This will be the dressing for the salad.
In a separate large bowl, toss the chicken, mangoes, and avocado. Dish out spring lettuce on to the plates first, then top with the chicken mixture. Pour over dressing and serve!
Avocado is your healthy fat in this recipe, and the sugar is in a small amount. Sugar is bad if not worked off and stored, so do not feel too bad about the dressing. Over all these are two very health beneficial and delicious recipes.
