Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 15-20 minutes
Serves: 4


Ingredients:

2 T. extra virgin olive oil
1 small sweet onion, diced
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
1½ lbs. carrots, diced
1 medium red bell pepper, diced
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
3 c. vegetable broth, preferably organic
1 T. fresh ginger, minced
2 t. fresh thyme leaves
1/3 c. full-fat coconut milk

Directions:
