Easy Honey Carrot Soup Recipe

Easy Carrot Soup Recipe | Easy Soup Recipes | Healthy Lunch Recipes

It’s no secret that I’m not a huge fan of vegetables, or eating healthily for that matter! We all need to make an effort every now and then though right? This marvelous Carrot Soup Recipe is actually a very old favourite of mine. They say a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down yes? In this case, 1 tbsp of honey and some chilli flakes help the vegetables go down! Not only does it genuinely taste amazing but it’s insanely simple to make too. It’s never been easier to eat your 5 a day and actually enjoy it!

Here is what you will need to serve 5-6. (Makes approx 2 litres.)

  • 30g Butter
  • 2 Leeks, sliced
  • 850g Carrots, peeled & sliced
  • 1 tbsp Honey
  • Pinch of Chili Flakes, optional
  • 2 Bay Leaves
  • Generous Pinch of Salt
  • 2 litres Vegetable Stock
  • Sour Cream, to serve

 

Essential Equipment

  • Very Large Cooking Pot or Saucepan
  • Stick Blender or Food Processor

Finally, all that’s left to do is remove the 2 bay leaves and blitz! You can either do it right there in the pot with a stick blender or in batches in a food processor. Don’t forget to give it a little taste and check for seasoning. Add a little more salt if you think it needs it.

Serve or Store

You can either serve this straight away with a dollop of sour cream, some chili flakes and a little chopped parsley (optional) or you can cool to room temperature then store in the fridge for up to 2 days. Alternatively, you can even freeze it for those days when you don’t have time to prepare a healthy meal! The choice is entirely yours.

This carrot soup recipe has been and always will be up there with my absolute favourites. The flavours are just beautiful! The sweetness from the honey, the little warm kick from the chilli flakes and that dollop of sour cream that just brings it all together wonderfully… you’d never even realise how much veg was in there if I didn’t tell you! This soup is literally a warm hug in a bowl. You need to try it!

I hope you enjoyed the post my lovelies, until next time.
