Thai Carrot Soup

Serves 8-10

1 spanish onions
3# carrots, peeled and chopped
1 jalapenos(or chili pepper of your choice)
grated ginger root
1 cup peanut butter
juice of 1-2 limes
1 can coconut milk
1/2 Tbsp cumin
1/2 Tbsp coriander
Salt, soy sauce, or fish sauce to taste

Saute onions until translucent; add ginger, carrots, peppers, coriander and cumin.  Saute briefly, 5-10 minutes, stirring to keep from sticking, then add enough water to cover, and bring to a boil.  Keep at a low boil for about 20 minutes or until the carrots are tender.  Transfer to blender or food processor, adding peanut butter, coconut milk, and lime juice.  Blend until smooth, return to pot, and reheat.  Add cilantro and salt(soy sauce or fish sauce) to taste.
