Urban Recipes

The perfect lunch for me in the fall is a warm bowl of soup.

Sweet potatoes, carrot and apple are pureed with creamy coconut milk, honey and curry. 

This Curry Sweet Potato Carrot Apple Soup with Basil Pesto is a savoury creamy comforting soup with a hint of sweetness.  Of course we can't forget the swirl of Basil Pesto on top! This adds another layer of nutty creaminess that takes this soup to a whole other level! It's warm comforting healthy food that's dairy and gluten free too! Try this recipe, it's easy to assemble and ready within 30 to 40 minutes.
