Savory Cream of Carrot Soup

October 14, 2014

savory cream of carrot soup1

I’ve been craving something lately,  I just didn’t know what. My eyes have been bothering me, so when I saw this recipe for carrot soup …it just looked so good that I couldn’t let the weekend pass until I made Savory Cream of Carrot Soup.  It is so very good, and the fact it’s delicious and good for my eyes…..well, it’s a win-win. And I had enough to freeze…. win-win-win.

We must be going to have a very long, hard and cold winter  (sure we are…in middle Georgia!) because my instincts tell me to fill my freezer full. This weekend I made three soups to freeze. I will post about that later this week….so you can get ready for the coming winter, too… 😉 One of the soups I made was this one…Savory Cream of Carrot Soup.

Carrot soup…..sounds so yummy. And it’s so pretty! How could anyone resist?  I used thyme in place of ginger and added some as a garnish.  I also decided to roast the carrots and onions. Roasting enhances the flavors and makes the soup very hearty and satisfying. Perfect for lunch on a chilly day.
