Instructions – Place in oven and bake for 25 minutes until carrots and onions are starting to brown. – In a large pot, combine vegetable broth and coconut milk over medium-low heat.

Make ahead:  Curry carrot soup is perfect for making ahead of time. If you are using the noodles, I recommend keeping the soup and noodles separate when storing. When the noodles sit in the soup for an extended time, they become quite mushy.
