A few words.. Let’s time stamp this recipe.  May 1st 2020 and I’m embarking upon my 4th Make Vegan Sexy month.  Get ready for a flood of sexy vegan food.  Follow @makevegansexy on Facebook and Instagram.



  • 1 tablespoon oil or vegan butter 
  • 3/4 cup onion diced
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup celery, diced
  • 1 piece of fresh ginger root, grated
  • 4 cups of vegetable broth plus more for thinning the bisque if necessary
  • 1-1/2 lb carrots, actually only used a 1 lb bag, diced
  • 1 small Russet potato, chopped
  • 1 small yam, chopped
  • tsp curry powder (optional)
  • 1 tsp tumeric (optional)
  • 1 tsp paprika 
  • Tastic spice, to taste*
  • Cashew Cream . I used a 6 oz. bag of raw cashews the book calls for 2 cups of Cashews, soaked for at least 3 hours, 1-2 tablespoon Lemon Juice, 1/2 teaspoon salt  and 1 cup of Water - or more as needed to thin, a pinch of salt, a squeeze of lemon juice and water as needed to achieve a cream consistency). I found I didn't want or need as much of this cream. It was perfect even with less.


    • In a large stock pot, add the oil, onions, celery and grated fresh ginger. Cook until the onions are soft and translucent.
    • Add the carrots, broth, potatoes, paprika and curry powder (if using). You could add all kinds of spices here. It just depends on your taste preferences.
    • Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer.
    • Cook, stirring occasionally, until the carrots are tender. It took me about 25 minutes.
    • Using an immersion or high speed blender, puree the soup until smooth.
    • IMPORTANT: If using a blender, allow the soup to cool and then puree in batches. Hot liquids expand and can create a dangerous situation in the kitchen.
    • Place the mixture back into the stock pot, reheat and taste for seasoning. I added more Tastic at this point along with some of the cashew cream. If it is too thick, add more vegetable broth.
    • Reserve the rest for serving.
    • Garnish with a sprig of thyme, spring onion or flat leaf parsley and serve warm.
    • Serves 4-6.
