INGREDIENTS:

2 cups chopped onion
1 tablespoon oil
3 cups vegetable broth
2 cups carrots, sliced
1.5 cups potatoes, cubed
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon coriander
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon garam masala
1 tablespoon super-hot salsa, Sriacha, or tabasco (or to taste)
2 cups plant milk (I used almond)

1.5 cups uncooked rotini pasta

DIRECTIONS:

Peel potatoes. Chop potatoes and carrots and put them in a large pot and cover with water. Bring them to a boil on the stovetop and then turn down the heat to medium-high and simmer at a low boil for about 20 minutes. Keep in mind the smaller you cut the potatoes and carrots, the faster they will cook.

In another large pot, bring oil to medium-high heat. Sauté onions in oil for about 3 minutes or until they are translucent. Add cumin, coriander, turmeric, and garam masala and cook for about 30 seconds until spices become fragrant. Add 3 cups broth. Drain potatoes and carrots and add them. Add the plant milk. At this point, you can either transfer the soup to a blender and puree it in batches or do what I did. I used my stick blender and just kept it going down in the soup until everything was smooth.

Add the pasta and cook for 20 minutes until pasta reaches the al dente phase.
