    • 2 Tbsp Harissa Spice Mix
    • 6 cups Vegetable Stock
  3. Prepare Thai Peanut Sauce

    Place all ingredients into a bowl. Whisk together well until smooth and combined.

    • 1/2, juiced Lime
    • 1/3 cup Unsweetened Smooth Peanut Butter
    • 2 Tbsp Coconut Milk
    • 1 Tbsp Water
    • 1 Tbsp Soy Sauce
    • 3/4 tsp Fish Sauce
    • 3/4 tsp Sriracha Sauce
    • 1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
    • 3/4 tsp, grated Fresh Ginger
    • 1 Tbsp, stems removed, chopped Cilantro
  4. Purée

    Pour soup into a blender, season with salt to taste and blend 2-3 minutes or until smooth. Work in batches if necessary. Check seasoning. Pour soup back into pot and let sit until ready to serve. Reheat if necessary. Note on blending hot liquids: 1. Fill the blender jar only half full. Filling the jar more than halfway can cause too much steam to build up and can blow the lid off the blender. 2. Place the blender lid securely on the blender. Remove center piece (feeder cap) of blender lid. 3. Cover the blender lid with a clean folded kitchen towel. The hot steam needs an escape route, this happens through the feeder cap and then out the edges of the towel. 4. Hold the lid on securely and start blending on lowest speed. Gradually increase speed. Following these instructions can help prevent severe burns.

    • 1 pinch Kosher Salt
  5. Serve

    Ladle soup into bowls and serve with topping. Garnish with reserved carrot tops, freshly cracked black pepper and olive oil, if desired.

    • 1 pinch Black Pepper
