The Best Carrot Soup

The Best Carrot Soup

If you have some carrots and onions, you’re almost all the way to making one of the most delicious soups ever. It might seem too good to be true, but I assure you, it’s not! The secret to this one is only making as much as you plan to eat right away, because the magical creaminess goes away once it’s been cooled and reheated.

Garnish this with some nutritional yeast, vegan parmesan, or real parmesan if you’re not vegan. Drizzle with a little olive oil, chili oil or even some of that truffle oil you’ve had in your cupboard forever!

Serve with some crusty bread or a green salad and marvel at how these 5 simple ingredients can turn into something so amazing.
