Carrot Soup

15 Dec

Today I had to put on a sweatshirt. By California standards that means it’s a winter’s day and thus time to make some soup.

This is perhaps my favorite soup recipe. The goodness and sweetness of lots of carrots, the hint of curry, and the creaminess that the rice gives it, instead of using cream.

#1- It’s delicious #2- It’s healthy #3- It’s very orange (that’s for you Kristina!)

INGREDIENTS:


  1. Saute onions in butter ’til translucent.
  2. Add carrots, rice, toss ’til coated.
  3. Add curry and chicken stock (I used to skimp on the curry…BIG MISTAKE. Now i make it with the required amount plus a little extra and it makes it taste MUCH better.)
  4. Simmer ’til tender. Add salt.
  5. Puree 1/3 at a time in blender.
  6. Return to pan and add milk and heat

* Do not boil

* If vegetarian, can substitute veggie broth

*I always double this recipe to make enough for one meal and then a leftover lunch.

      Hi Sheri- it is GREAT to be home! Of course there are always more ‘to do’s’ on the list, but it’s nice to get in the mood and do some Christmas stuff around the house.
      Great to see that night, I wish you a Merry Christmas to you and your fam!
