This easy carrot soup recipe is perfect to make when you are low on ingredients but fancy a quick and nutritious meal! Carrots have such a lovely sweet flavour, that with just a couple of other ingredients thrown in they make a silky and satisfying soup.

One of the reasons that I make this soup is that my kids love it, and it makes a brilliant quick dinner or lunch when you don’t have much in! It’s also easy to scale up to make into a big batch for the freezer, and there are plenty of other ingredients that you could add if you fancy jazzing it up a bit! Fresh ginger adds a lovely flavour, as does chilli. You could add some curry powder, or even just some smoked paprika- it’s a great base for experimenting with.

  1. Spray a pan with oil or low calorie cooking spray, and sweat the onion for a few minutes, allowing them to soften

  3. Pour in the hot vegetable stock and add in the potato
  4. Simmer on medium heat for 20 minutes
  5. Using a hand blender, whizz into a smooth consistency

If you haven’t used your HEA milk for the day, then you can add 125ml with the vegetable stock for a slightly creamier soup. You can cook this in the slow cooker, add an extra 125ml of stock.
