Hello my lovely friends! I created my own lovely Autumn Carrot soup and I hope you try it out. I love trying out new recipes and this one is super easy.
8 Cups of water
3 Garlic Cloves
1 Veggie cube
6 big carrots cleaned and diced
1/4 tsp celery salt
1/4 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1tsp finely grated fresh ginger
2 bay leaves
1tsp balsamic viniger
1/4 tsp coriander powder
1/4 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp Tumeric powder
1/4 tsp dry mint
1 tbs brown sugar
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp pumpkin oil or any other oil
1/4 cup of bulgar
*lime to garnish if you like.
Place everything except the bulgar in one pot and cook for 35 min on medium heat.
Turn off stovetop.
Take out the bay leaves.
Blend soup until smooth.
Cook for 20 more min and turn off stovetop.
Add the 1/4 cup of bulgar, stir and cover for 5 min.
Place soup in a bowl and if you like add lime juice on top.
I hope you try this recipe out. It’s delicious and has a kick of heat that is perfect for cold weather. Let me know if you try this recipe out. I added the sugar because my carrots were a bit bitter so feel free to take out the sugar or any other spice you don’t enjoy. I personally love all the spices. Have a lovely day my friends!
I can’t go without Butternut Squash soup in October. I love the flavour and the colour and the added bacon, onion and garlic! It’s so delicious and comforting. I’ve come up with a recipe that is a family favourite. I hope you try it out and if you do let me know if you like it.
