Carrot Soup_main

With just a short list of ingredients, you have a very delicious, and easy, carrot soup. If your grocery stores are like mine, they’re stocked with huge bags of carrots, at a very reasonable price. Why not stock up, and make soup, and freeze it to enjoy all winter? Sounds like a plan to me!

Sometimes homemade soup can seem like quite a task, but this recipe is quick and the prep is minimal. The best part is you’ll have a yummy soup in 30 minutes.

I find the thyme and dill go really great in this recipe, but if you prefer other herbs, then by all means, switch it up for the herbs you prefer.

If you’d like to add some creaminess to this soup, you could mix in some yogurt. Just be sure the soup isn’t too hot, and opt for a 2% + milk fat or else it could curdle. Another dairy-free option would be adding in unsweetened coconut milk or almond milk after you puree the soup.
