Roasted Carrot Soup
Cold winter weather calls for comforting, hearty soups. This Roasted Carrot Soup is sure to warm you up. Not to mention, its packed with healthy veggies (a.k.a. carrots), so you can get your daily source of veggies in without even realizing it!
I absolutely love any soup – but I’ve realized, I much prefer a blended soup to a broth based soup (unless its ramen… because I LOVE ramen noodle soup).
Otherwise, in terms of popular soups – sure chicken noodle is great, or a nice minestrone, but to me there is something so comforting about a blended soup – like potato leek, butternut squash, or even pea soup.
This Roasted Carrot Soup is equally awesome. Blended carrots, onions, garlic, fresh basil, ginger and creamy coconut milk.
Thick and rich with flavor, top it off with a dollop of sour cream to make it even creamier .
Roasted carrots, onions, garlic, fresh basil, ginger and creamy coconut milk, all blended together… This Roasted Carrot soup is delicious and nutritious.
