It's Autumn,It's Wet, It's time for Soup!

Carrot Soups

What's not to love about carrot soup? 
It's a great choice nutritionally
It's frugal
It's quick
It's satisfying
It's easy to make
It's versatile
It tastes GREAT!

Thanks to my own version of carrot soup  I had 6 vegetables for lunch and there's enough left over for at least 3 more servings. I don't know about you but I don't usually eat 6 different vegetables at lunch time!

Here's my version: 5 carrots, 1 red capsicum, 1/4 cauliflower, 1large shucked corn cob,  1 medium potato and 1 medium red kumara, cooked, blended with stock and water..seasoned to taste.

I cruised pinterest for a while before deciding to adapt a recipe to better suit what ingredients I have but above it a collage of some other tempting carrot soups....

Simple Carrot Soup, one small change and it will be vegan friendly too.

Cream of Carrot Soup, not as fat free as the others but all things in moderation I say!

German Carrot Soup I can't wait to try this one. It doesn't use stock so  a good one for a last minute soup!

Roasted Carrot Soup contains ginger for added oomph!

Carrot and Cauliflower soup. Recipe uses a whole head of cauliflower and not a drop of cheese sauce in sight!

So, who's hungry?

May your nest be blessed!
