I'm in the middle of making this soup for the first time, and already I love it. I woke up early this morning to feed the dogs and was feeling restless. I looked in the fridge and realized we had a lot of carrots to use up. A quick search and I found this recipe. Based on some previous carrot soups I have made I added a couple pinches of ginger and a tablespoon of basil. I'm also substituting homo milk for the half-and-half. I have high hopes for this fragrant pot of goodness!
This easy carrot soup is a great way to use up a bag of carrots that were forgotten in your produce drawer.

I am making this soup for the second time in two weeks. I had a big bag of carrots and wanted to use them up. I had no celery but it did not matter. I added a little extra fresh garlic (which I do to most of my recipes) and a teaspoon of smoked paprika. Voila! So delicious. Thank you so much for this recipe!
I used Fat Free Buttermilk, which I usually substitute in soups that call for milk or cream. Beautiful color, creamy texture & best use of leftover carrots I've come across. So easy...carrots & pantry items...that's it! If you don't have a hand held immersion blender...get one. Makes every pureed job a snap...& keeps the recipe to one pot! :)
I found this the easiest directions to follow. I had a few small beets in fridge so I put them in also.. it turned out really nice.. Thanks for sharing!
Any diet that rules out carrots is not a healthy way to lose weight. Thank you eatingwell for posting delicious recipes for people who follow a diet where no fruit or vegetable is forbidden!
