I am still getting through the big ol’ box of potatoes on my counter! This carrot soup is super tasty and really easy to make. You might be thinking, why is the carrot soup gold instead of orange? I was at the farmers market yesterday and they had the most beautiful white and yellow carrots so I went with those. Feel free to use orange carrots, or any color carrots for that matter 🙂 I hope you enjoy and happy meatless Monday!
Vegan Creamy Golden Carrot Soup
What you’ll need:
4 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, diced
1 lb. carrots, peeled and sliced
3 medium size red potatoes, peeled and diced
5-6 cups of water
Salt to taste
Fresh herbs for garnish such as parsley, dill, or chives
What you’ll do:
Heat the olive oil in a large pot and add in the diced onions and a pinch of salt. Saute until the onions get pretty soft. Add in the sliced carrots and saute until they get a little soft. Took about 10 minutes. Next add in the potatoes, toss together and add in 5 cups of water. Bring to a simmer and let simmer for about 30 minute or until the potatoes are fork tender.
Working in batches, blend the soup in the blender until smooth. Return to the pot and season more with salt and add more water if you need to thin it out.
