You heard me: BOMB DIGGITY.

This carrot soup is as bomb diggity as they come. It’s also 5-ingredient easy, Instant Pot ready, vegan, supes clean, cozy, and easily freezable and share-able, all of which makes it an awesome addition to our Feeding a Broken Heart series.

The other day on Instagram, someone told me that she wanted to bring a recipe to her friend who is going through a hard time, but her friend needs a dairy free gluten free everything free recipe. I am happy to report that this carrot soup is quite easily dairy free, gluten free, and more. It is very friendly for a lot of people who might otherwise have a hard time with all the carbs and cheese that we are packing into this series, and guess what? CARROT SOUP DON’T NEED NO CHEEZ. It’s bomb diggity delicious.

I’ll stop now.

True story of how I made this soup has nothing to do with anyone bringing me anything or me bringing anything to anyone. It’s an actual Tale of Laziness, which is how most of my favorite recipes get born.

A walk to the fridge for lunch turned into an unsuccessful hunt for leftovers, so I went into Fridge Scrounging Mode and found one basic thing: carrots! um, yay?

A quick scan around the pantry and I was able to locate an onion, some garlic, a can of coconut milk and a little curry paste, and suddenly my food brain came alive and everything turned straight up orange.

How can I make this carrot soup with as little effort as possible? said tired/lazy/sad Lindsay.

Instant Pot! obvi. Where all good things go to be made great.

You don’t have to use an Instant Pot for this recipe – as you can see from that picture, it also looks lovely in a nice cast iron soup pot getting stirred around like the magically creamy vegan witch’s brew that it is.

But the thing about the Instant Pot is that you can come up with your plan for lunch at 12pm and have your  clean and fancy lunch on the table by 12:45, AND still somehow still manage to find the time to read that headline on Bored Panda about a desperately thirsty cobra that is given a water bottle by a zookeeper and you won’t believe what happens next. That is just the reality of the carrot soup life when you enlist the help of the Instant Pot.
