INSTRUCTIONS

1

Rinse and dry all produce. Peel carrots and roughly chop into ½ inch pieces. Peel and dice onion. Pick leaves from the cilantro stems and set aside. Cut the lime into 4 wedges.

2

In a large pot over medium heat, add 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add carrots and onions and sauté lightly for about 3 minutes, season with salt and pepper.

3

Turn heat to high and add 2 cups vegetable stock into the pot. Cover with a lid and allow to cook for 15-18 minutes, or until carrots are tender. Be mindful of the steam when checking carrots! Continue on to next step while they cook.

4

To toast quinoa, first rinse the grain under running cold water. Drain well, and place in a small pot of sauté pan over medium heat. Continue to stir as quinoa dries, and it will develop color in a few minutes on the heat. Once a nutty aroma starts to come from the pan you will know it’s done. Remove from heat and set aside.

5

Once carrots are tender, pour the mixture into blender along with coconut milk and blend until smooth Season with salt to taste.

6

Cut avocados in half, use a chef’s knife to pull out pit and slice the flesh while still in the shell. Use a spoon to scoop each side out and place on top of soup. Squeeze a wedge of lime over the avocado and sprinkle cilantro over soup. Enjoy!
