  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion (chopped)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 2 tablespoons ginger (grated or finely chopped)
  • 5 cups carrots (peeled & chopped)
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • ¾ teaspoons salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 13.5 oz coconut milk (400 mL; full fat works best)
  • ½ lime (juiced)


  • Select the sauté function of the Instant Pot. Add olive oil and onion to the inner pot. Cook for 5-6 minutes, until onions are softened and translucent.
  • Add the garlic & ginger, cook 1-2 more minutes.  Turn off sauté function.
  • Add carrots, broth, salt and pepper and thyme leaves to the inner pot. Stir to combine. Put the lid on, turn vent to 'sealed' and cook on manual high pressure for 5 minutes.
  • After the timer beeps, allow the pot to sit for ten minutes (natural pressure release), before releasing the remaining pressure.
  • Blend until smooth with an immersion blender, or carefully transfer to a stand blender and puree in batches.
  • Stir in coconut milk and lime juice, and enjoy!
