Carrot Soup: The Easiest Soup You’ll Ever Make

Carrot soup…hmm. The sound of it didn’t really appeal to me at fist but when you find yourself with as may carrots as I have you become open to anything. I made carrot cake blondies, but that only used up two carrots. Gah! I had to find a way to use a lot more carrots.

Thankfully this soup used over two pounds! And it was the easiest, cheapest soup I’ve ever made. Its so rich and decadent in taste you would have thought there was cream in there.

Get

  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 pounds carrots, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 inch fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • salt and pepper to taste

Make
*In a large stockpot over medium heat, add in the olive oil and butter. Sauté onions until translucent, about 5 minutes.
*Add the curry powder and ginger, cook for another minute.
*Add in the carrots, chicken broth and water and bring to a boil. Simmer for about 20 minutes or until the carrots are tender.
*Using an immersion blender or blender, blend soup in batches. Add salt and pepper to taste. Top with cilantro or parsley if you like.

Enjoy!
