RECIPE: Zesty Carrot Soup

wpid-picsart_10-25-07.37.41.jpgFar from the plain-Jane carrot soup of norm, this Zesty Carrot Soup recipe is completely phenomenal with loads of flavor!

As an added bonus, this recipe is completely dairy-free, but still super creamy, AND, as a result, it’s completely vegan.

Folks, dig in, feel good about it, and enjoy every zesty sip! Here we go!!!

*Makes 8 servings*

Chunk up and throw the following ingredients in a large pot:

  • 2 lb carrots
  • 1 lg onion (or the equivalent, I used shallots because I love their flavor, so use whichever onion equivalent tickles your taste buds)
  • 1 lg sweet potato, peeled
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 c parsley

Fill pot with water until all of those delicious fresh veggies are covered.

Put the whole pot full-o-goodness on the stove and cook over a medium heat until veggies are tender (20-30 minutes), stirring occasionally.

Once veggies begin to soften, add these ingredients to the pot and continue to cook over that same heat for about another 10 minutes, stirring occasionally:

  • 32 oz vegetable broth
  • 6 oz tomato sauce
  • 1 t hot pepper sauce
  • 1 t salt
  • 1 t ground black pepper
  • 1/2 t paprika

Now that the flavors are fully blended, take the pot of goodness off of the fire and allow to cool for about 10-15 minutes, or until it’s cool enough that you feel confident in your blender’s ability to blend it without melting the blender…

Once cooled enough to handle, puree half at a time in your blender until smooth and creamy.

Now, this deliciousness is ready to serve, or you can put it back into your original pot and warm back up a smidge on the stovetop. Enjoy this amazing take on the classic carrot soup!

Until next time, my friends…

Make it a great day,
