Oh, the joy that this soup brings me. It is perfect in so many ways- it's hearty, it's got veggies, it's got curry, & it's so tasty.
1 TB olive oil
½ onion, chopped
1 cup peeled chopped carrots
1 cup chopped celery
¼ cup all-purpose flour
2 TB curry powder
6 cups chicken broth (or veggie broth)
½ peeled and chopped Granny Smith
2 cups cooked rice, white or brown
2 cups cooked, diced chicken (or none)
1 tsp salt
¼ tsp dried thyme
½ tsp black pepper
¾ cup whipping cream
Add carrots, celery, & onion to oil & cook until soft.
cashew cream instead of heavy cream.
P.S. We also served this at Lincolns' blessing party & people LOVED it!
