  • 2 tsp (10 mL)
    olive oil
  • 1
    large onion, diced
  • 2
    cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp (2 g)
    curry powder
  • ½ tsp
  • ½ tsp
    ground turmeric
  • ¼ tsp
    ground allspice (optional)
  • 3
    carrots, chopped
  • 2
    medium potatoes, chopped
  • vegetable bouillon cube
  • 4 cups (960 mL)

Serves well with


  1. Add the oil and onion to a large pot on high heat. Cook until lightly caramelized, about 5 - 7 minutes. Add splashes of water as needed to deglaze the pot.
  2. Add the garlic and all the spices. Cook for another 2 minutes.
  3. Then add the remaining ingredients, except for the quinoa. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cook for 15 minutes, or until the potatoes have softened.
  4. Using an immersion blender, purée the soup to the desired consistency. If using a standing blender, we recommend blending half, so that some small chunks remain.
  5. Serve alongside some cooked quinoa, or with croutons. Enjoy!

This soup is delicious! Excellent soup for those with sensitive stomachs.

Gliselle Marin - Feb. 21, 2024, 1:47 p.m.

Super easy to make and tasted great! I tasted the potato more than the carrot, but I'm a potato lover so that was fine. The spices were not overpowering and made it comforting.

Morganna - Jan. 19, 2024, 11:31 a.m.

Really delicious, I will make it again!

Em - Jan. 15, 2024, 5:05 a.m.

Very tasty. This soup was a family dinner success; adults thought it was delicious and the kid finished a full
bowl. I used coriander instead of garam masala, and sprinkled chopped parsley over the quinoa (as the pictures suggested something like that, and I had parsley that needed eating). I will probably try cilantro with the leftover soup (as I doubled the recipe)!

PUL Team - Jan. 15, 2024, 6:56 p.m.

Mmm sounds lovely! Thank you for the insight, Em 🙌

Kathrin Breitenbach - Jan. 6, 2024, 2:11 p.m.

This was a good solid soup and I love the idea of quinoa as a topping 😊 next time I'll add some more different toppings to make it even more interesting 😋 it's great as a clean out the fridge or staple soup!

Very nice 👍

Ghazi - Dec. 7, 2023, 5:59 a.m.

Chrysiida - Dec. 2, 2023, 12:48 a.m.

I am not really one for soups, but I was so excited to try some of the soup recipes in this app that I bought a standing blender! This is the first recipe I tried and I love it so much! Can't wait to try more!

PUL Team - Dec. 2, 2023, 3:28 a.m.

Oh we're so thrilled that the soup was enjoyed, Chrysiida! It's a huge compliment. We have lots of lovely soup recipes on the app which we think might just convert you to a soup lover 😜

Yum! 🥰 Simply delicious!
Added some chickpeas instead of quinoa and a bit of black peppper when serving.

Martunia - Oct. 16, 2023, 9:26 p.m.

Yummy! The addition of quinoa makes the soup also very filling 👌

Sarah Elizabeth - Aug. 24, 2023, 7:53 p.m.

Just made this for the first time today, for lunch. It was so comforting, definitely will be added to my cold weather soup rotation.🥰🍲🍞

Rachel - Aug. 11, 2023, 4:07 a.m.

Solid recipe, but I found it was lacking a little depth and acidity so I added some lemon juice and that seemed to help a lot!

Lish - July 7, 2023, 2:57 p.m.

Delicious and easy soup 😊

Marti - July 6, 2023, 9:02 a.m.

Where is the video for this recipe please?

PUL Team - May 8, 2023, 12:57 a.m.

Hi Dharma, there isn't a video for this recipe but our iOS mobile app will be shared soon which shows step-by-step pictures 🤗

Dharma Gopalakrishnan - May 8, 2023, 2:49 a.m.

Hi Team,
Will you have an android app coming out also, as I do use android?

PUL Team - May 8, 2023, 5:30 a.m.

Hi, Dharma - yes, the app's first version will only be available on iOS devices, but we aim to release an Android version soon after. We chose first to gain experience with launching the app for iOS before venturing into Android territory. We’re confident it will be worth the wait!

Jacqueline Williams - April 14, 2023, 4:40 p.m.

Made this last night and it tastes even better today! Such a simple and nourishing soup that’s full of flavour!

Karla - Jan. 18, 2023, 7:47 p.m.

I was looking for a way to use up the carrots I had left over and this did not disappoint. It was very yummy and perfect for a cold winter's day.
I added a bit of cream at the end and had some leftover rice with it.
Thanks for sharing! I'll definitely make it again.

Aiste - Dec. 2, 2022, 11:31 p.m.

I was pleasantly surprised how such a simple soup can taste so good. Thank you!

So happy to hear, Aiste!

What a yummy curry/soup recipe! This definitely hits the spot. I've been enjoying it with fresh cilantro on top and some pita bread on the side.
Thanks for sharing!

PUL Team - Sept. 21, 2022, 11:25 p.m.

Mmm cilantro and pita sound like delicious pairings, Abigail! Thank you 😊

So happy to hear, Leïla, thank you 😃

Wendy - Dec. 18, 2021, 6:56 p.m.

Can you substitute the curry by curry mango powder (santa maria)?

PUL Team - Dec. 21, 2021, 2:20 a.m.

Hi Wendy! Feel free to use santa maria curry powder if desired. We'd also recommend giving the soup a taste and adding more spices as desired to taste 🙂

Lucie - Sept. 24, 2021, 9:16 a.m.

I tried this recipe with lentils instead of quinoa: it tastes amazing! Thanks!

PUL Team - Sept. 24, 2021, 7:20 p.m.

Mmm a lovely substitute, Lucie, thank you!

Delicious flavor and texture!
