7 Disney Soups To Warm Up With This Season

The wintertime is the perfect season for a piping-hot bowl of soup! Especially this year, as the cold seems to have come with a vengeance! Luckily, Disney has us covered and is sharing seven soup recipes for us to make.

There is even a recipe from Boma included!

Let’s head to the kitchen to whip up some of our very own Disney magic and warm our soul in the process! These soups are from all across Disney, with a recipe from the Disney Cruise Line as well. We could definitely use a nice cup of soup right about now so let’s get to the recipes.

We are venturing all around Disney with these soup recipes. From Carnation Cafe in Disneyland Park to the EPCOT’s International Flower & Garden Festival, and even on board the Disney cruise ships, we are excited to share these seven Disney soup recipes with you!

Curry, Carrot, and Apple Soup from Disney Cruise Line


We are starting off with a good one! This Curry, Carrot, and Apple Soup comes from Disney Cruise Line and is full of flavor! The combination of curry, carrots, and apples makes for a cozy bowl of soup. The soup is blended to perfection and then topped with some fresh parsley and creamy yogurt.

Serves 4

Here are the ingredients to grab:

1/4 cup vegetable oil

1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon curry powder

1 cup diced carrots (about 4 medium carrots)

1 medium onion, chopped

2 Granny Smith apples, peeled and chopped

4 cups vegetable broth

1 whole carrot

Coarse salt, freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Plain yogurt, fresh parsley, for garnish

Now let’s get to cooking! Here are the steps:

  1. Heat oil in a large, heavy bottomed pot over medium heat. Add curry powder and cook, stirring, for 2 to 3 minutes. Add diced carrots, onions, and apple, and stir until coated with curry powder. Sauté for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
  2. Stir in broth and cover. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until carrots and apples are very soft, about 20 to 25 minutes.
  3. While soup cooks, preheat oven to 400°F. Peel whole carrot and shave into very thin curls. Roast for 3 to 5 minutes, or until ends are browned and crisp. Remove from oven and set aside.
  4. Remove soup from heat and purée in a blender, or with a hand-held immersion blender. Season with salt and pepper.
