Simple carrot soup

A simple, easy, and tasty carrot soup that you can whip up in 25 minutes

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.
