1/2 cup tomato paste
2 1/2 cups water + 1.5 cubes of vegetable bouillon OR 2 1/2 cups vegetable stock

Heat oil in a large saucepan. Once heated, add onion, garlic, ginger, and carrot. Saute until onions are translucent.

Notes

As with all of my recipes, I began planning it weeks ago in my trusty recipe planner. A couple of attempts later and here you have it! This soup shares many of the tastes you’d find in a curry, but is light and playful and combines fantastically with a warmed grain or crackers.
