At once savory, smoky and sweet, vadouvan is a French-influenced curry powder best known for its addition of aromatics like shallot and garlic to traditional Indian curry spices. Here, we’re harnessing its complex flavor in a seasonal vegetable soup, made with parsnip, sweet potato and collard greens. Homemade baguette croutons top off each bowl with a layer of crunch, while a dollop of lemon-seasoned Greek yogurt perfectly balances the mild heat of the soup.
