Coconut - Carrot - Curry Soup

  • 8 to 10 medium carrots diced
  • 4 outer stalks of celery - cut up
  • 2 cups of diced yellow potatoes
  • 2 cans premium coconut milk
  • 1 bunch of fresh cilantro finely cut up
  • 2 tbsp lemon grapeseed oil (Salute Sante)
  • 1 tsp Frontier Curry
  • 1/4 cup Ginger/Garlic Base
  • 2-6oz filets King Salmon (Ivory) cut in small cubes (optional)
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 1 drop lemongrass essential oil (optional)
  1. Place carrots, celery, potatoes and cover with water. With lid on pot, simmer vegetables until tender.
  2. In another pan warm the ginger/garlic base, lemon grapeseed oil and curry. To this add the water and Ivory Salmon. Gently simmer for 4 or 5 minutes.
  3. Add this to the vegetables with the 2 cans of coconut milk, lemongrass essential oil and water for desired consistency. Heat, but do not boil. 
  4. Add the chopped cilantro and serve.


1. For a little thicker broth, you could add Kuzu and/or arrowroot: 1 tbsp. Kuzu & 1 tbsp. Arrowroot dissolved in half cup of water.

2. For a little thicker & creamier broth: Instead of dicing the celery, steam it whole (you can add more than 4 stalks if you desire), add some of the cooking water to blender with celery and blend until smooth. Add back into the pot of soup. This could be done with any light colored vegetable or peel zucchini and use steam zucchini blended to make a thicker broth base.

3. Use any fish or omit the fish completely. If you omit it completely you still will need to add the ginger/garlic base and curry.

Asparagus Vegetable Soup

2 Large Bunches Fresh Asparagus
1 Medium Parsnip, peeled and diced
1 Medium Carrot, peeled and diced
Broccoli Stems, peeled and diced
A Few Sprigs Parsley, finely chopped
1 Tbsp. Roasted Garlic Salute Sante Grapeseed Oil
1 Tbsp. Lemon Salute Sante Grapeseed Oil

1. Steam the parsnip, carrot, broccoli and parsley to desired texture. (About 5 minutes)

2. Clean the asparagus and have break the tough parts away but do not discard.An organic farmer taught me to hold the asparagus spear, apply pressure at both ends until it breaks. The top part is the tender portion we all love. The bottom part when cooked is stringy and tough. This recipe makes good use of the part most of us toss.

3. Place both spears and bottoms in a pan and steam to desired doneness. (Always pour off the water the asparagus was cooked in because it contains a toxin which is removed by steaming and is in the)

4. Remove the spears and set aside. Place the asparagus "bottoms" in the Vita Mix with more than enough water to cover and blend throughly on high. If you want a creamy soup, just cover the stems with water. For a more brothy soup, cover the stems with about 3 inches of water.

5. Combine the blended asparagus stem liquid with the steamed vegetables, the roasted garlic and lemon grapeseed oils.

6. Season to taste with salt and/or pepper.

7. Cut the steamed asparagus spears and place into the soup just before serving.

1 tsp. caraway seed
1 tsp. oregano

1 parsnip, peeled and diced
½ tsp. salt
2 Cups carrots diced

3. Add all or whatever vegetables you have on hand and enough water to more than cover everything.

4. When all is done, add bag of frozen peas. Makes 3 to 4 quarts of soup.
If fennel bulb is not in season, just liquify a little more green beans and double the ground fennel, if desired.
You can omit what you want with the vegetables and add what you would like, and you still have a great soup as long as you stay with the broth base of garlic and herbs with the oil.
