Carrot soup with ginger and coconut milk

 I have a thing for cute vegetables. For the bright and vibrant ones of course, but also for the uglier ones on the market. The dull-coloured, bumpy and lumpy ones, of which I almost feel they're a bit shy, quietly waiting for a customer to take them home. They almost had me feeling bad for taking home this bunch of wild ones....more
