This classic carrot soup is an easy soup packed full of flavour, with sweet scented cinnamon and caraway adding an unusual depth. Make this recipe year-round for a comforting and speedy dish that the whole family will love.
Roasting the carrots first gets the most flavour out of them and when it comes to puréeing them, they come out really sweet and delicious. Sometimes they lose a little flavour if you boil them, so it’s worth going to the extra effort to make the soup.
If you want to get creative, you could also add some parsnips into the mix for a little added flavour and sweetness. This recipe serves 4 people and will take 20-30 mins to prepare and cook. A portion of this homemade soup works out at only 105 calories per serving.
