Coconut and carrot soup with lime and basil, from Nami-Nami

Coconut and carrot soup with lime and basil, a rich, fresh taste from Nami-Nami (on Soup Chick).

To me, there is something impossibly seductive about the taste of citrus -- especially lime -- in winter. Perhaps it conjures images of vacations to Mexico, and plucking the fruit from my husband Ted's uncle's back yard lime tree. Whatever the association, a small burst of lime makes me feel, somehow, warmer. I think this coconut and carrot soup with lime and basil, from Pille at Nami-Nami, would good hot or chilled. Fresh basil might be a bit hard to find at this time of year. If you've frozen basil from your summer herb garden, you're all set. The recipe doesn't call for much of it, so go ahead and buy a few sprigs of basil at your local grocery store.

Delicious take on carrot soup! Lime is an addition I normally include, but coconut? Never. Gotta definitely try it...
(so Brazilian! ;-)

Sally, isn't it so Brazilian?! I love the combination. It's definitely hot soup for us here in RI, where I can see snow from my window.
