Carrot Soup (V)

Time for soup! Usually if a need carrots in a dish I only get 2 or 3 at the market. But this week he only had bags so I figure well why not I will think of something to do with the rest of the carrots. So eventually I decided to make a carrot soup with it. It was delicious! I made it somewhat thicker but if you don't like this just add some more water and put it in your blender.

Duration: 20 minutes

The ingredients for 1 serving:

  • 6 carrots
  • 1 small red onion
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 cm grated ginger
  • 1 vegetable stock cube
  • 0.5 liter boiling water
  • 1 tbs sweet paprika powder
  • 1 ts cumin
  • olive oil
  • salt & pepper

What you do:
  1. Cut the onion and slice the garlic cloves. Put a (soup)pan on medium heat and heat up a good splash of olive oil. Add the onion, ginger and garlic and sauté until soft for about 4 to 5 minutes. Meanwhile slice up the carrots. 
  2. Then add the stock cube, water and sliced carrots. Bring to a boil and leave to simmer on low to medium heat for 10 to 12 minutes until te carrots are soft. 
  3. Get the pan off the heat and puree with a 'hand mixer' or if you want a little less thick soup blend in your blender. Put the pan back on the heat, stir in the paprika powder and ground cumin and season with salt & pepper.
  4. Optional: Serve with some fresh parsley and a slice of spelt bread.
