Creamed soups are perfect if you are serving an evening meal that features several courses. This soup is sure to get noticed for it's originality and distinctive flavor. The soup has a delicate balance and is not too rich with cream, as many creamed soup are. You can make this soup a day ahead and gently heat the next day....or you could serve it cold if you wish. I adore this soup. It has an attractive color and an alluring aroma. I recommend that this soup could be offered at most any fine meal. I want to try it next time with some lump meat crab sprigged on top! Yum!!!

How to Make Cashew Soup (gingered)

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large pot, heat the olive oil with the pepper flakes. When hot, add the carrots, celery, and onion. Saute/cook for 4-5 minutes. The onions will be clear.
  2. Add the garlic and ginger and saute for 1-2 minutes more.
  3. Add the stock/broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cover to cook for 40 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, grind the cashews in a clean coffee grinder with the 2 Tbsp flour. Grind to a fine grind. Set aside.
  5. When the vegetables/soup are done/tender, remove from heat and cool until a safe temp to handle is reached. When cool enough, puree the soup with an immersion blender or a blender. Get the soup as smooth as possible.
