Simple Carrot Soup Recipe

Sharing is caring!

This simple carrot soup recipe is perfect for getting your daily vegetable intake without eating a giant salad. Increase the spices if you prefer a hotter soup

One of my favourite ways to get my daily vegetable intake is with a simple, homemade soup. This simple carrot soup recipe delivers 3 servings of vegetables, and pairs perfectly with a salad (more veggies!) or sandwich for a balanced and healthy lunch. Check out our other easy soup recipes

Every once in awhile, I need something that feels light but still fills me up and gives my body the nutrition it needs. We always have a large mason jar of homemade soup in the fridge for those occasions – plus, it’s great for rounding out a meal that could use something extra – or needs a healthy boost!

This simple carrot soup recipe is sweet and savoury, thanks to slowly cooking the carrots in coconut oil to bring out their natural sweetness, and then seasoning them with cumin. You can alternatively roast the carrots in the oven, if that’s more convenient.

I use chicken broth, but I’ve also made this recipe with water for a thicker consistency and still delicious flavour. (This is a great option for serving kosher meals, if you want to pair this soup with something containing dairy.)

This is a great sweet and savoury carrot recipe with just a hint of cumin. Feel free to increase the spices (listed as optional) if you’d like something with a bit of a curried edge.
