Sounds fantastic! I despise cooked carrots (must be the consistency) but love raw carrots and carrot soup -- go figure! Trying this
Thanks Jennifer. I'm so glad you like raw carrots and carrot soup so that you CAN try this recipe.
I'd love to hear what you think about it, if you get a chance to make it! 😀
Dannii @ Hungry Healthy Happy
I just love a simple carrot soup like this, and a great way to get an easy vitamin boost. Plus, carrots and cumin just go so perfectly together, don't they?!
Yeah, totally Dannii, carrots and cumin are absolutely fantastic together.
What's really strange though is that Lynne LOVES this soup, but doesn't like carrot and coriander. How does that figure? Lol 🙂
Jenn - a traveling Wife
I don't think I've ever had carrot soup, but that looks amazing. Any type of soup is perfect this time of year.
When I thought about this recipe in my head, before I put it together Jenn, I was afraid that it would be really bland.
But honestly, there's something really satisfying and warming about this soup, so yes, it's absolutely perfect for this time of year.
Carrots, they really are just so amazing!
Susie @ SuzLyfe
So glad that the first application for your mandolin (well, at lest, the first one that you mentioned) will be sweet potato crisps. That was the first use for mine! And I love carrot soup, and thank you for making it ABOUT the carrot and its awesomeness, not about what else you can shove in there.
Sweet potato crisps on a mandolin were the first too Suz, and they were absolutely delicious!
Never again will I even attempt to make sweet potato crisps with a knife. I'm all about my mandolin now, getting a special holder, steel gloves, and it engraved too, lol (Ok scratch that last one 😉 )
I'm humbled by the carrot here. It needs to be on it's own for the uniqueness of this soup. 🙂
Liz @ The Clean Eating Couple
Love how simple this recipe is! I've never had carrot soup but it looks like the perfect thing to warm up with now that the weather is turning colder!
Liz, I could practically LIVE off this soup. If that were possible without the need for other essential vitamins and minerals. 😉
As I write this to you we are in the middle of a storm here in the UK called "Barney". Who ever thought of the name Barney?
This soup is essential here at the moment. With the howling wind and rain outside, it makes you feel good inside. 😀
Shashi at RunninSrilankan
Neil - yes - I so understand why you bought that mandolin and I am so impressed you've started your Christmas day prep - heck, I haven't even started my Thanksgiving prep and Thanksgiving is next week!
I also understand your lack of photos - I'd have totally been lost in all that the BBC Good Food Show had to offer! I hope y'all got to taste that coconut cake in addition to the wines...
And now coming to this soup - love the depth of flavor in it - the sweet carrots mixing with the smokey and spicy cumin and coriander would be such a treat on a cold evening!
Hey Shashi. 🙂
In reading all my American friends bloggs, it just seems like such a busy time for you guys. You basically go right from Halloween, to Thanksgiving and then straight into Christmas! Just the thought of all those 3 celebrations together, without a break in the middle makes me feel tired! 🙂
Loving your description of the soup. Yep, you've described it perfectly. 😀
Rebecca @ Strength and Sunshine
Such a wonderful light soup! The best for pairing with anything and totally drinkable..like with a straw 😛
Ha ha! 🙂
I never thought of drinking it with a straw Rebecca, but yeah you totally could. Do you know, it might actually be really good as a cold summer drink too? (With that straw idea?)
Must try it cold in summer too, to see. Thanks for the inspiration there! 😀
rachel @ athletic avocado
i like carrots alittle too much because the evidence shows on my skin! this soup looks amazing, i love the simplicity! Yum!
Thanks so much Rachel.
I must admit, I did think about mentioning those "adverse" affects on skin colour if you eat too many carrots!
But I figured that your average person who isn't getting enough goodness from eating enough vegetables in their diet needs to be encouraged to eat more. So I left that out.
Maybe I should just have a warning published for you and I? 😉
I want to dip pieces of grilled chicken into this soup!
Now there's an interesting combination GiGi!
But yeah, I can imagine that would be pretty amazing!! 😀
