Roasted Carrot Soup

Roasted Carrot Soup

It’s a rainy day here in Canada’s beautiful rainforest. While the ancient cedars and diverse wildlife add to the majesty of the Clayoquot Sound region, the rain and dampness that sustains these precious trees and creatures can leave me feeling a bit chilly. And what could be more warming than a nice homemade bowl of soup? Well, maybe a nice homemade bowl of soup, a long soak in a hot bath, and afterward curling up by the fire cuddled with my hubby.

Before I head to the kitchen to start making Roasted Carrot Soup, I thought, why not share this delicious (and oh so simple!) recipe with everyone else who is in need of some warming comfort food that’s full of nutrition? So, here’s one of my favourites, from my new book, The Life Force Diet. Hope you enjoy it. And maybe when I’m done, I’ll head for that bath and some serious cuddle-time with my husband, Curtis. Now that’s a perfect rainy day forecast!

The Life Force Diet Roasted Carrot Soup

Serves 2 to 4
6 large carrots, chopped
2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic (whole)
1/2 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. Himalayan crystal or Celtic sea salt
1/2 Dash cayenne pepper
3 – 4 cups water, depending on preferred thickness

1. Saute carrots in olive oil over low to medium heat until softened.
2. Add whole garlic cloves and continue sauteing until garlic is soft and carrots are lightly browned.
3. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
4. Heat and serve. If using a Vita-Mix blender, continue blending until soup is hot; then serve immediately. If not, then blend all ingredients together, heat, and serve.

Serving suggestions: Top with a handful of raw, unsalted pumpkin seeds.

Sounds wonderful. There is nothing so comforting as a bowl of soup! (With a piece of toast or a muffin.) Thanks.

I found this as a link from 14 Healthy Soup recipes, and I admit it sounds delectable, and I will probably be making it very soon. However I am a bit perplexed by the title - these carrots are pan sauteed - not roasted. Next time I have the oven on I will probably roast some carrots and garlic and use them to make the soup, but the title is clearly wrong.

I dunno, sounds too hazardous to me...what about the steam/condensation...if not the water?

Thanks, this is good advice for both cats and dogs.

I must say, I know a few humans who could use these tips for themselves! Hahaha ;-D Seriously tho…
