Curried Sweet Potato and Carrot Soup

We make a lot of soups throughout the week. Nico loves soups, and I love liquids that go along with big loaves of bread! This quick curry soup can be made with the mixture of sweet potato and carrot, or with either of the roots, whatever you have on hand! I have made all three variations over and over again to great result.

The soup pairs well with baguette, but I love to pair it with a batch of freshly made Buttered Naan! Both naan and soup keep well in the fridge and freezer, so I generally make a double or triple batch and pour it into smaller containers for lunches for the rest of the week.
