Peace & Love Carrot and Cashew Soup

As I sat sipping a soy latte somewhere in Notting Hill, I read this little article in some free magazine laying around. It was about all sorts of different calls to 999. Around the death of Michael, there were apparently loads of people wanting to know if Michael was really dead. You have to imagine the urgency of these people's emotions forcing them to call 999. Not only the emotions, but the trust! That wasn't the funniest part though. The best thing was the mother who called in asking about her lost TV remote control. Hahahahahaha! I had to dry my eyes laughing. Imagine this old woman calling emergency for her TV remote! Hahahahahahihihihihi! Her son was a convict, and that had something to do with her thinking calling emergency was a good idea...

4 carrots
1 onion
2 garlic cloves
2 dl unsalted cashews
1 lime

sambal oelek
vegan stock

Peel and cut the carrots, onions and garlic. Fry the onion and the garlic for a minute, then add the carrots. Add a liter cooking water, 2 table spoons stock and a half spoon of sambal. When the carrots are soft, add the cashews and the lime juice and cook for another few minutes. Blend with hand blender. Sprinkle herbs over it if you want.

(Soup more or less from Peace, Love & Food.)
