Spiced Carrot and Celery Soup

Minoo prepared four recipes for the South Arm Community Kitchen for this meet. We started with a simple, colourful, lively and warming soup.


The simple carrot and celery is spiced up with curry powder. You can add any leftover food like ham or roasted chicken shreds into the  soup to make it more appealing to kids. The addition of potatoes or grains will make it more creamy and hearty.


  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 6 medium carrots, diced
  • 4 large sticks of celery, diced
  • 4 cups water or vegetable stock
  • salt and pepper to taste
